    I made this for the first time and really liked it. It’s a nice change of pace from what we normally have and my wife even had 2 helpings, something she normally doesn’t do.I’d like to change it up and maybe try diced or ground chicken.

    My favorite food is Chinese food. When I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and a diabetic my whole world of eating had to change, including no more Chinese food (too much sodium). When I found this recipe, I was so happy and to top it off all the ingredients were on sale at my local market for that week. I decided to give it a try. So glad I did, my husband and I both like it. We liked it so much we had it again the following week when our son was home and he loved it too. This is defiantly a keeper.
