  • This was good! Needed to add MORE cornstarch and I recommend adding it to a small bit of water - not taking the broth out...too messy and hot. Also needed (IMHO) more flavor..of course, that could be because I used Teriyaki instead of Soy. But the flavors blended well and came together nicely. - 4/7/10

    The dish is ment to have more veggies then meat. And when served each portion is about 2c including rice. Oh and with the breasts i use it has about 2+ cups of meat.
