    Midwest Maven's Note:

    This is a sweet and spicy chicken stir-fry dish with yummy crisp tender veggies. This is easy to throw together and even easier to devour with some hot rice. We liked it with fried rice, but it'd be just as good with plain white or brown rice as well. Enjoy!

      This sure takes a long time for a stir fry but the final product is worth it. Usually I've used sherry for marinating the meat or splashed in at the end, so found the technique of slow-heating the veggies in it interesting, and added lots of flavor. The chicken comes out tender and delicious but tastes strongly of the five spice powder. I couldn't taste the honey. I would love to try making this again without the five spice. If someone doesn't care for it, they would not like this dish since it's the dominant flavor. I couldn't get it to thicken at the end so added cornstarch paste. A delicious dinner and great introduction to using prepared broccoli slaw in stir fries, which I'll start doing frequently.

      We enjoyed this! Spicy and sweet. Full of great veggies. This would have been nice with the addition of a slurry made of cornstarch and water to give the sauce a nice clingy glaze. I didn`t need to use the extra oil. Thanks for a winning recipe.
