    Very Tasty. I don't like Mushrooms so added Bean sprouts , broccoli, cauliflower , and Carrots. Putting this over Brown Rice its Wonderful. Adding a Salad makes for a great supper.
    I will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing. - 4/22/09

    GREAT stir fry recipe. I omitted the celery and added broccoli, sugar snaps, and red, orange, and yellow pepers. A terrific and tasty way to get in some servings of veggies. I'll definitely make this again. - 7/4/07

    OMG my husband and I will be making this again. We used cooking wine and I don't like ginger so we used garlic minced and baby carrots instead of green peppers. This was so good we are cooking it again this week. Thanks - 1/22/10

    Wonderful recipe! We had the green peppers, carrots, and broccoli- next time we hope to add in some baby corn and snow peas. Extremely filling and wonderful with the brown rice. Thank you for sharing with us! - 1/18/10

    I have not tried the recipe yet but wanted you to know that the calories are miscalculated. Each serving should have 70 more calories. because you did not enter the correct amount of chicken...1 lb of chicken has about 500 calories...divided into 6 portions would be about 83 calories a serving. - 9/29/10

    This was so simple to make and it turned out delcious. The only thing i left out was the celery b/c my husband doesn't really like it. Next time I would add some red pepper for some nicer coloring. - 6/25/08

    I've usually made my stir-fries with rice wine, but this version with red wine sounds very good. I'll probably try it this weekend, with the addition of another vegetable, maybe asparagus. - 6/6/08

    Liked this as base recipe but used what we had on hand. We like food a little zippier so added red pepper flakes, used bag of Kroger Stir-Fry vegetables, added broccoli, slivered carrots, fresh from the garden red bell pepper and red jalapeno. Liked it! - 11/12/10

    I have tried making many a stir fry recipe and it always comes out horrible. Not this one though! The directions were easy and it tasted delicious. Instead of mushrooms we added a can of baby corn (drained). Served with some brown rice for added fiber. Definitely will be making again! - 5/8/08

    This was one of the BEST dishes I've ever made! I doubled the marinade & let the chicken sit for about 1/2 hour...delish! Next time I'd add some additional veggies & double the water chestnuts because they're my fave. MAKE THIS DISH! It's low cal & very filling! LOVE IT!!!! - 2/10/08

  • This was delicious! I don't like mushrooms so substituted with red, orange and yellow peppers. I didn't have water chestnuts and just added more peppers. I added about an extra 1/3 cup more liquid at the end (no salt chicken broth). I will be making this again. My fussy husband even liked it. - 1/9/13
