    Excellent dish. I put in more of the chili sauce, added carrots, celery, onions and ginger. Put it over a bed of rice and its dinner everyone loves.

    This was wonderful. GREAT flavor. I made my own chili sauce and added green beans, and mushrooms.

    We have made this twice now, and it's on the rotation again for this week. We make it as written with one MAJOR change - we use firm or ex-firm cubed tofu in place of the chicken, keeping the egg white and corn starch as written. OK, I think we also increase the peanuts slightly. Served with steamed brown rice, it's a tasty and healthy winner. update: still making this, but we've added some ginger.
