I made this with chicken & added vegetables, broccoli, carrot, snow peas and cashew's on top.
I followed the direction's and other ingredients nearly exactly..... I had to use gluten free soy, (may I add I did not like the gluten free soy and arrowroot instead of flour). I had to do this because DS's girlfriend was coming to dinner but everything was as per recipe. It is a very quick and easy recipe to make, I found the hardest part was cutting up the vegetables. ;-)
I cooked the chicken first then followed the recipe as written then adding the cooked chicken toward's the end and garnishing with cashew's.
DS, and DH loved it, myself.... I found it very bland....... BUT in saying that, I thought it need more soy which I did add a little more gluten free of but still found it bland. My problem was in tasting the soy, I found the gluten free did not have the same flavour, and I think that was the problem, as I do like a rich soy when cooking.
I have some left over that I will have for lunch, and am going to add normal soy to see the outcome, I bet I will like it then!
But apart from all that, it was truly enjoyed by the men in the family and they asked for it again!
Ohhh and after all that .............. DS's girlfriend ended up not coming for dinner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
Thanks Karen Elizabeth.

This is a great recipe! I used many of the vegetables here, but left out the pinapple chunks. I added pumpkin pieces instead and used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed as well (although I had to cook that first before adding the other ingredients), It is really a great recipe to try!
