I made this today for my boyfriend and myself while taking Toni's suggestion of using noodles except of rice. I really loved it but the biggest surprise was when my boyfriend, who usually thinks of eating as something we do to survive, said that he liked and even enquired what's in it. It's a hit!
This was wonderful and quick. I replaced the white rice with soba noodles and tossed in some green beans and julliened carrots to make this a one dish meal. Would also do well with snap peas. The broth is a nice combination of sweet and spicy certain to please even picky eaters. Thanks.
This was a really fast and easy stir fry. I did sub beef for the chicken, for some reason chicken makes my pregnant body sooo ill. Nice for a fast meal. No pic cause i thought the beef pic might confuse some people! :)
