What can be better than this, if you like veggies? It is fantastic! Had along with salmon and we all thought it was great! Flavors were just right and didn't change anything while preparing it! Thanks for this recipe Paula!

Loved the sauce-just right. I thought I was pretty smart and stir-fried everything, including chicken breast, at once using a lid to hurry things along. NOT a good technique. Using chicken was fine but follow the directions.
