The first time a made this stir fry, I followed the directions exactly. This time I added onions and red peppers and it was very good. I also substituted beef instead of chicken. Very good!!

too bland - needs some spicing up
Rating: Unrated
Have to agree with one of the other commenters, could tell this recipe was going to be bland so I added onion to the vegetables, salt and pepper to the chicken, and garlic to the sauce. Turned out great with these simple additions.

I rated you a one star because of how many clicks I had to make to get to this recipe. What should have been one click to one screen turned into four or five clicks and three different screens.
