    very close to take out... I forgot the onion/scallions and added in about 1 tsp of sesame oil... and swapped the splenda for 2 TBSP of honey... YUM... maybe next time I will add some sesame seeds and LESS or NO sesame oil - 1/20/11

  • Not what I was expecting. Used honey instead of splenda and red onions instead of scallions. Had to add sriracha to up the heat factor. Not spicy enough without it. Love that it is not fried! Thank you for sharing! - 10/28/13

  • I'm glad to have found a low calorie version to one of my favorite meals. Can't wait to make it this week. I will rate it then.

  • Not what I was expecting from the reviews... very good, but not quite take-out status. But then again, could just be missing the fried battered chicken, LOL. I would make this again. I also used honey instead of splenda. - 9/3/11
