I modified this based on what I had on hand~ used some already grilled lemon chicken breasts and substituted garlic pasta sauce for the tomato sauce. This bypassed a LOT of the cooking time since the pasta sauce was thicker already, and I only used about 1T of the corstarch. I used about 1T of fresh diced ginger and some liquid from the root that I pressed directly to the pan. End result was FANTASTICO! This is a wonderful recipe that will handle modifications based on what you have handy~ my favorite kind of recipe since I tend to ignore measuring cups anyway :-)

Found this recipe when looking for new ideas for dinner. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand for this one. It calls for 1/2 c. cornstarch. This is way, way, way too much--it would have made the sauce SOLID. I used about half a Tablespoon. Perhaps the original measurement was a typo. At any rate, I used a 14 oz can of tomato sauce. Even with that and the reduced amt. of cornstarch, I had to add 1/3 c. water to keep the sauce from becoming as thick as paste. The flavor was wonderful though. The ginger adds a slightly exotic flavor. My family enjoyed this dish.
