      Excellent recipe. Extremely easy to make - in fact, this was all I made for dinner. Wonderful aroma while cooking, and a great flavor. I actually used aborito rice because that's all I had, but I cooked it as rice and not risotto. Wonderful! Thanks, Sue!

      This is KraPOW! A bit too spicy, so I'll cut the chilis in half next time. I only had reduced sodium soy sauce so it needed salt. But, Very good! Will definitely make this again. I think it would be great with shrimp too!
      Update: I make this frequently with leftover rice. The full sodium soy sauce is a must, and I made it with shrimp this week and it was awesome!

      This recipe is very versatile and works great even with substitutions. Things I did to this recipe:
      I used, leftover chicken, shrimp, chopped steamed veggies, added a touch of oyster sauce, and peanut oil, used rice noodles instead of rice. Took out the spice for kids.
      Served cold for pack lunches for my kids. I got rave reviews, they loved it eating it with the pair of chopsticks in each bag.
