Thank you soooo much for sharing this recipe!! I just finish serving this to my family. They were standing in line at the stove for the last bit in the pot... DH was standing in wait to see if any would be left for him (like throwing him a bone or something) but none was left. Its a keeper!!! I only change one thing... instead of the skinless boneless chicken breast... I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs (juicy and tender). I did add can mushrooms, sweet white onion, green onion and much much slaw mix ( we love veggies). Again terrific!!! FIVE STARS for quickness, flavor, easy, bring family together and fun to eat (13 year old son threw that in!!!).3Reply
I made quite a few modifications, but I REALLY liked this! It was SO easy and tasty. I'm a vegetarian, so I didn't use chicken. Instead, I skipped down to step 4. I added a tiny bit of sesame oil and olive oil to step 6 since I didn't have leftover liquid in the pan. I also excluded the egg because I don't eat eggs. I eat a lot of oriental ramen (it's the only veg one) and was surprised at the flavor that came out of only 5 ingredients! I had this ready in 10 minutes. Thank You for sharing!Reply
