"This has by far become my favorite stir fry dish. It is a mix of my girl friends favorite chicken stir fry, my favorite technique and sauce for stir fry; and this is the final result. Basically, a 4 ingredient dish with a simple sauce, stir fried and served over rice with a crunch. Yes, chopped water chestnuts make this rice a great compliment. Now, for dinner, I serve some Napa cabbage, rough chopped and tossed with shredded carrots and shallots, topped with an Asian, or toasted sesame seed dressing for a perfect side. Now you can make your own dressing, but there are so many store bought dressings available these days which are pretty good. It is such a quick easy dish for a week night dinner. And ... If you're in the mood, a few spring rolls, egg rolls or an miso or egg drop soup would make a nice starter course. A couple of notes. Don't skip of any of the steps, it is what makes the dish work so well. Also ... add the water chestnuts to the rice, it really makes the dish. And the sesame oil gives it the stir fry flavor. Don't skip these ingredients."

"This was really good Sarasota. I didn't see the scallions listed in the ingredients list, so I just sliced a few about 1-in. long, and added those to the veggies. I also didn't have the red pepper and used a poblano instead. I don't know that it made a difference but it was tasty !
We like the water chestnuts in our stir-fry, so I added those in too.
Very tasty over rice and I will make this again for sure !! Thanks.
Later..... oops, found the scallions in the recipe (thanks Sarasota)"
"Great stir-fry recipe! My favorite addition was the toasted cashews. Wow, did that ever make a difference. Another yummy addition was the use of sliced water chestnuts in the brown rice. Don't be scared off by the length of the directions. This stir-fry was really very easy, especially if you have everything chopped, out, and ready to go! The only tweek I will make next time is to add corn starch to the sauce mixture , so the sauce will thicken up more. Thanks for another great recipe! ~Made for Spring 2011 PAC~"
