***Made for Pets'R'us cookathon event May 2010*** In the infamous words of Tony the Tiger, this was GGGRRREAT! I really enjoyed this. 2 things I did different, not by choice though. I used regualar cabbage because the Bok Choy was horrible at the store. And I cannot get red chiles here. So, I used a chili garlic sauce, and added in about 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. It was perfect amount of "heat" for me. Thanks Pets for such a great recipe.
Yum! I marinated the chicken thighs for about 4 hours. Made a double batch, so I wasn't able to stir-fry it properly. I don't care, though! =) I added mushrooms, squash, broc, cauli, & other stir fry veggies along with the bok choy and asparagus. Turned out wonderfully moist and delicious. Hubby requested it again
Quick, easy and very good stir-fry. I had to substitute chili garlic sauce as I didn't have the sweet chili sauce. I also had to use dried arbol peppers. I broke them open and dumped the seeds on the chicken. Served with brown rice. This would probably also work well with carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms if bok choy or asparagus are not available. We'll be having this again. Thanks for posting.
I was looking for a way to use some Asian condiments along with some asparagus that was about ready to be tossed I had in the frige and came across this recipe and so glad I did! Delicious! We used chicken tenders and I made the marinade before work and came home to finish up dinner - so easy and perfect over rice, even though I skipped the red chilies (I was out) and only used three garlic cloves--it was still spiced just right. Thanks for sharing!
Very, very good stir fry. The sauce is delicious. I cut the recipe dowm for 2 people and made it just like the recipe said. Marinated it for about 4 hours. The chicken has such a good flavor and the sauce is great with the asparagus and bok choy. DH loved this I will be making it again, thank you pet's.

Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src="http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/completedbanner.gif"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Animation1.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/4treasurehunt.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
