      This is very good. I used chicken tenders, which made preparation easy. I also followed I'm Pat's example and added some vegetables - carrot and green peppers in my case. I increased the sauce by half again to account for the added volume. I was a little wary of the 5-spice, but followed the recipe, and am glad I did. Thank you for posting this recipe.
