    I tweeked this recipe a bit by adding some snap peas, carrots and water chestnuts instead of mushrooms. I also added soy sauce and a little bit of brown sugar, extra cashews and fresh broccoli instead of frozen, and green onions instead of regular onion. Came out very good and tasty! - 8/19/12

  • If you want to take it up a notch (also a little unhealthier though) coat the chicken with egg, dip in flour and then in a wok with a little bit of oil, fry the chicken. Take it out, then stir fry your veggies in the wok, add your sauce, put the chicken back in to coat with sauce and then serve! - 4/23/13
