    mersaydees's Note:

    This recipe is based on one from Judith Ferguson’s cookbook, Microwave Chinese Cooking. I love this recipe served over rice. TIP: I find it helpful to dissolve the cornstarch in equal parts, in this case 1 tablespoon, of cold water; then stir into the light stock as directed.
