Dyno-mite!!! We love stir-fry and this is one of the best we have tried. The chicken coated in the seasonings and spices really jazzes things up. The veggies made the stir-fry so colorful and tasty. The lime-honey sauce just tops it of with a wonderful sweet-sour flavor. I served this with steamed rice. We salute you Evie*
Great recipe, we really enjoyed it. The sugar snap peas (Mange-touts paeas) didn't look fresh so I took the liberty of using frozen green. Because we are "HOT" spice hounds I added 3 tbsp Thai Chili sauce and omitted the caster sugar The lime honey combination is just the right finishing touch. This was SOooo good Thanks Evie* for another tasty meal
I made this for the first time for a dinner party. I was really disappointed and whilst I followed the recipe letter for letter it was bland. Sorry! Next day I jazzed up the leftovers a little with a handful of coriander, a generous dollop of oyster sauce and sprinkling of chopped peanuts, but still bit bland.
