    5 stars! Easy to make & VERY tastey. Made a few minor changes: sautee'd veggies first in olive oil (used 1T ), then added the chicken strips to them. Also added 2T of red pepper flakes (we like it hot). Used Worcestshire inst of soy. My DH is on 2nd helping. Have pic,if you want it lmk. YUMMY! - 4/27/10

    My husband said this was good, not like the restaurant kind but still good. I am a vegetarian so I have to go by his comments. - 1/6/10

    you can - but from what I understand from my naturopath you really aren't supposed to cook with olive oil. But there are many opinions on that as there is with everything else :)
    Just enjoy the recipe..regardless of what oil you use
