This is one of my favorite dishes. It has a really good kick. Make sure not to overcook the eggplant because then it will get mushy.

This was REALLY good. I love the flavor of the sauce and will use it in other stir fry dishes as well.

I started making this with every intention of sticking to the recipe, but after the chicken and eggplant were cut, I realized that I was out of oyster sauce. So I subbed 2 tbsp hoisen sauce and 2 tbsp fish sauce. Don't know how different this flavor was, but we loved the way it turned out. My DH went back for seconds, which is pretty unusual, and my DD's very picky BF actually liked it (and according to DD "he doesn't ususally like stuff). I used 4 Chinese eggplants and 2 chicken breast halfs, and doubled the sauce (except for the chili sauce). Served over brown rice. Will absolutely be making this again. Oh, I just remembered that I added a bag of bean sprouts at the end, just because I had them and didn't want them to go bad, and we really liked the crunch they added. Thank you!!
