This is a delicious recipe, different from the normal stir fry, salad or curry. Quick as lightning to make too. I use just cooking spray or bake them.

I really liked these, and so did my children. I did add a splash of soy sauce to the mix and adjusted the amount of spice and garlic for us. I served them with Recipe #409412 and some fresh veggies. My only problem was that they were a little dry, but I'm sure that can be fixed, maybe I'll try them with chicken thighs instead. Thank you Marra, I will make these again! Made for our team the Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6, Asia.

I thought these had a very nice flavor and texture. I did use ground turkey ( 93 % ) so I bet that helped with the moisture. They do need a sauce - I used hoisin sauce since it was what i had on hand. I froze these after cooking and have been using in pita's and on salad for lunches. Nice recipe. Thanks

These were kind of plain - I'd expected a lot more flavor.
