Loved this! Really tasted great and was quick. I didn't have any leftover chicken, so I marinated a couple of chicken breasts in orange juice and soy sauce overnight, then cubed and stir-fried.<br/>To get five stars, drizzle a little sesame oil and rice wine vinegar over the whole mess at the end of the cook time, then stir in.<br/>Added 7/21/10: I've made this several times now, and never have leftovers. Today I made it with the meat from leftover barbequed chicken leg quarters. The barbeque flavor really adds a good twist to this dish.1Reply
This is a delicious recipe, I've been making it for awhile now. It is from a 2002 edition of Quick Cooking Magazine(Taste of Home). Another reviewer noted that the directions do not say when to add the pineapple, the original recipe calls for adding it in with the green pepper and carrots. My family loves when I make this dish!Reply
Yum, this was delicious! I used MINIMAL oil, diced chicken breast, fresh ginger, and added some cut up snow peas. I used Shirataki tofu noodles for my dish, and whole wheat spaghetti noodles for DH. Both were AWESOME. If you like more sweet, add a little sweetener, or some cider vinegar to make it a "sweet and sour" type of dish. I served this with egg drop soup and a salad.1Reply
