    Hi, Natasha!

    How much rice do you make for this recipe? And, at what point do you add it in when making this recipe? Reply

    • Natasha
      September 2, 2019

      Hi Victoria, it really depends on how many you are planning to serve. This recipe makes 4 portions so I will typically make between 1 and 1 1/2 cups of rice which after it is cooked, 1 cup raw rice = 3 cups cooked rice. Reply

    Really delicious recipe!! The sauce was so good, just too salty.
    It’s a very versatile recipe because you can add your favorite veggies! I will make a few changes next time. Use low sodium soy sauce. I did double the sauce recipe which may have made it extra salty. I would also simmer the sauce to thicken in a separate pot before adding it to my chicken and veggies. Adding it to them and then simmering over-cooked my ingredients. It tasted just like the stir fry at our local restaurant! I will definitely be adding this to the rotation at my house! Reply

    I’m making this as we speak and realized that it’s out of order and not very well thought out.

    1- you forgot to mentione adding the onions which you mentioned in the ingredient list.

    1- no salt? No pepper?

    I’m hoping it turns out great since I caught on to the seasoning part while making the chicken. Will post again after dinner!

    But thank you for the idea of the recipe! Reply

      July 15, 2019

      Hi Christina, I haven’t tested that but here is what one of my readers wrote “I made it with carrots,snap peas, red pepper, broccoli, zucchini and onion. I also substituted the soy sauce for liquid aminos and added a little crushed red pepper for a little spice and served it over rice noodles” I hope that helps. Reply

  • Christy
    July 8, 2019

    My family LOVED this recipe!!!! I added an additional tablespoon of honey, because the soya sauce I had on hand was super salty… next time I will buy reduced sodium soya sauce. My husband added some red pepper flakes for a touch of heat as well. Excellent stir fry recipe for sure!!!! Reply

        I used frozen broccoli and zucchini. After cooking the chicken and removing, I sauted the raw veggies in oil and butter as instructed, then removed. I sauted the frozen broccoli and zucchini until the water content from them was evaporated and they were heated through. Then I continued with the recipe. Tasted great!!! Reply

  • Sarah Beth
    June 7, 2019

    I had high hopes for this dish and was very excited to try it since it had so many good reviews. However, the sauce had too strong of a garlic flavor and there could have been more sauce. I think you could tweak the recipe a bit and then it would be a decent Chinese dish. Reply

    • Natasha
      June 10, 2019

      Hi Sarah, it helps to sautee for a minute after adding the garlic – giving it that minute on the heat really mellows out the garlic flavor. You could increase the sauce if you prefer it more saucy but also be sure to use the same amount of noodles as stated in the recipe – otherwise the noodles can overwhelm and absorb most of the sauce and leave it feeling dry. I hope that helps to troubleshoot. Reply

  • Ada
    May 30, 2019

    I seasoned the chicken beforehand myself since this recipe doesn’t call for any seasoning whatsoever, and the sauce took forever to reduce, all the veggies got soft. I’d skip the water in the sauce next time, and not bother “simmering” just let it keep boiling Reply

    • Natasha
      May 30, 2019

      Hi Ada, adding salt early on in the recipe isn’t recommended since it can cause the vegetables to release extra juice. Also, be sure to add the chicken and veggies to the skillet when it is hot. The sauce normally thickens fairly quickly if no substitutions or modifications are made. This post might help on how to measure ingredients (wet and dry) to ensure you have the correct proportions. Reply

      I made this randomly beacuse I was sick of regular baked chicken. So glad I did! I’ll be making this again. It’s a perfect recipe for my super picky husband, I made this with just chicken and mushrooms.

    We loved this recipe! Of course, because of being on lower sodium diet, I had to make a few adjustments to reduce sodium. I used a combination of lemon ponzu sauce and sweet soy sauce, which are both lower in sodium than light soy sauce. I also left out the honey because of the sweetness of the sweet soy sauce. I had no zucchini in the house, but added one ear’s worth of corn and some whole french green beans. Reply

    Aloha,
    I made this for dinner last night and the family enjoyed it! I have a very similar sauce (white sugar instead of honey and no cashews) so I used that and followed your instructions. I topped off the final dish with 4 Thai chilies so whoever wanted could take one. I normally incorporate the chilies into the dish but because I used red, orange and green bell peppers I didn’t want anyone (hubby!) to mistake it for the red bell peppers! I will definitely be checking out your other recipes. Thank you for sharing! Have a wonderful day! Reply

    My family LOVES this meal and is a staple for our mid week meals! I have my vegetarian sister visiting and wondering if I can substitute the chicken for Fried tofu squares? and use Veg. stock? With maybe white wine (as per another comment). Would that be ok? Reply

    • Natasha
      April 5, 2019

      Hi Mummy, I think that could work with tofu (although I have zero experience with tofu) – from how I’ve seen it being used, that should work. I think vegetable stock should work fine. Reply

    • Natasha
      April 1, 2019

      Hi Beth, because the sauce (including the honey), comes to a boil, according to this source, if there are any dangerous bacteria, boiling kills it off. You could also try brown sugar added to taste. Keep in mind honey is sweeter than brown sugar Tablespoon for Tablespoon. Reply

    This was delicious!!! I made it with carrots,snap peas, red pepper, broccoli, zucchini and onion. I also substituted the soy sauce for liquid aminos and added a little crushed red pepper for a little spice and served it over rice noodles 😊 Reply

    Hey Natasha, I recently started a new job as a fireman and I am expected to cook a lot. Unfortunately I am not much of a cook and have to cook for 8-11 guys 2 nights a week. Do you have any recipes hat can help me mix it up in the firehouse for that many people to feed? Reply

    Hi Natasha! I made this stir-fry last night with 3 chicken breasts along with a very large yellow pepper, 1 long carrot which I julienned, just over a cup of broccoli florets, a large onion, 3 thin celery stalks, 3 large garlic cloves and 2 tsp minced ginger. The sauce is very tasty and I will have enough for about 3 or 4 more meals. Way better than take out! Thanks for another good staple easy recipe! Reply

    Made this tonight, a very happy husband. I’ve tried to make stir fries but they just don’t come out right so I gave up on them and then came across this. Great, easy recipe. Just added green chillies for a kick. Loving that I can prep ahead and then quick to cook. Thank you Reply

        December 21, 2018

        Most choose to serve this over rice, but it is possible to stir it in the rice after frying up the vegetables. You will need to add water and flavoring to that, however. 🙂 I hope you enjoy that. Reply

    Thank you for the recipe! Mine came out a bit runny but tastes pretty good. I’ll will try again tomorrow to get the same viscosity as the Chinese Take out places. Should I just add more cornstarch? Reply

      Yes! Adding more could help with that. Reply

    Hubby and i made this last night and LOVED it! He raved about it the whole time we were eating and is still going on about how good it was today.
    We used snow peas instead of zucchini and i only used 1/2 the amount of garlic. Super easy and beyond delicious! Can’t decide what to make next!!

    This came out very yummy. Would be great if you could add approximate cooking times to the steps in the recipe for us novices … I definitely let my veggies go too long. Haha! Reply

    • Kim
      November 6, 2018

      I followed the recipe exactly, and the sauce was so runny that the veggies were swimming in it until I could cook it down, so they were very soggy. I also adjusted with additional corn starch once I realized how much there was. Maybe not so much water next time. Otherwise the taste was good. Reply

    are the cashews suppouse to be raw or salted? Or raw and toasted and then added into the dish? Mine tasted soggy right away, was not pleasant. Reply

    a great recipe, love being able to use my own fresh ingredients in what, for me, is a different flavor profile, and also love knowing what’s in it (as opposed to take-out!), great for instance that the sweetener is honey instead of a dollop of sugar, thank you! Reply

    • Natasha
      August 15, 2018

      Yes! I love that you can make this a different recipe every time just using the veggies you have on hand, and the honey as a sweetener is a healthier and tastier way to go 😉 Reply

    I happened upon this recipe today and realized I already had everything for it in my fridge! It was easy and so good. The husband loved it and I know I will definitely make it again. I just used whatever I had on hand, which was zucchini, onion, green beans, carrots, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Reply
