    This was wonderful, my husband and I both really enjoyed it. We used sesame oil and 1/2tsp of red pepper flakes but will probably use 1/4t next time. We also sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds on top. Yummy! - 3/3/09

    This was very good. My husband and 2 year old twin boys really liked the flavor. I served it with brown rice and broccoli. I know this will effect the nutrition count, but I am going to try it next time with some Sherry and low sodium chicken broth. Yummy! - 2/27/09

    This recipe was fantastic! Tasted SO close to real G. Tso! I'm so glad I don't have to give up my favorite Chinese food dish, because of this recipe. My husband and I both said WOW at the first bite. - 5/14/09
