I enjoyed this stir-fry. It was light and refeshing. Loved the crunch of the snow peas. Marinating the chicken with the sherry certainly added a nice flavour to the dish. We will use the recipe again. Thanks Dorothy :-)

Great recipe! Even hubby commented on how good it he scarfed it down! I did tweak it a little. I doubled the sauce and I added a little bit of honey. I didn't have low sodium soy sauce, so the honey took the 'edge' off the saltiness. One thing hubby suggested for next time is to replace the 1/2 cup water with chicken stock instead. I'll be making this again for sure!

Excellent stir fry recipe. If you get everything ready ahed of time it tkes minutes to make. I thought I had sherry in the house - last minute no sherry - I used equal amounts of Brandy Excellent.. Use the full amounts of the onions, garlic & ginger - they are so tasty on your rice. Thanks Derf for a very enjoyable meal. Love your recipes.
