This was actually milder than I thought it would be. Very tasty and easy to throw together after doing the chopping. I changed the veg based on what hubby will eat, so snow peas, red pepper, onion, carrot, and bean sprouts. I thickened the sauce with guar before serving. While I agree this would be wonderful over rice, since I carb count I ate it as is. Might serve on cauliflower fake rice next time. I did use splenda and just a touch of black strap molasses rather than sugar. Thanks for sharing.1Reply
This was really delicious! I took off a star only because I tweaked it some for our own tastes and because of what vegetables I had. I doubled most everything because I had a pound of chicken. I added some cilantro at the end along with the zest of the lime. This was great and I will definitely make again!1Reply
