    I love this recipe, my husband and I make it pretty often but omit the chicken for a meatless option during the week. We are actually about to have our first baby and would love to stockpile a serving or two in our freezer. Would you recommend freezing it and/or have any tips to do so and reheat?

    Absolutely love this recipe, I make it all the time. My son has an oral allergy to fresh fruits and veges, so I use frozen stir fry veges, which is just as good and cuts out the extra prep work. I add it at the same time as the sauce, which I double the sauce because I love it that much. I use chicken breast, low sodium soy sauce and replace chicken broth with water and better than bouillon. Over white rice and I’m a happy camper!

    You can knock down the sodium by using low salt soy sauce.

    What if I do not have fresh ginger on hand, can I use ground ginger? If so, how much is recommended for this recipe?

      Hi Maribel, I imagine that should work too if that’s what you have on hand. Just season it according to your preferred taste.

    I’m not sure if it is a typo or not, but is that the actual amount of sodium in the meal? 42% is quite high. I’m very interested in making this meal and would like to know if that is the actual amount of sodium in the meal.

      Hi Christine, that is accurate with 4 servings – you could add a little less soy sauce or scale down the sauce to cut down on sodium.

      Reply

    • Terry
      May 7, 2020

      To make the sodium level lower in this dish, use fresh mushrooms and not canned. Use unsalted cashews. Use no salt added chicken broth and use low sodium Soy Sauce and cut the amount to 1/8 cup instead of 1/4 cup. Believe me, I feel your pain. Most foods are LOADED with sodium. My wife and I are on sodium restricted diets. We don’t use added salt in any dish and we buy all low sodium products or fresh. Learn to read the labels and don’t use pre packaged or canned food if you can help it.

      Hi Dominique, 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.

          Hi Donna, step 3 says “Once oil is hot, add chicken in a single layer. Cook chicken until browned, mixing as needed. Once cooked, remove chicken from pan and set aside.” once that step is done you add vegetables to the same pan and then re-add the chicken in step 5. I hope that helps!

    Hi, Natasha!

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

      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.

    Best substitute for soy sauce or could it be made without? I am allergic to soy.

      Hi Lisa, Coconut Aminos is our favorite product to use as a substitute, but keep in mind it does have less sodium so adjust seasoning to taste.

    Is there a substitute for corn starch!
    Thank you,

      Hi Julia, it can be substituted with flour, arrowroot, or potato starch.

    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!

      Hi Irina, I think it is best fresh but you can refrigerate and then reheat leftovers the next day.

    I’m vegan. What can I substitute for the honey without changing the taste too much?

    BTW, Love your recipes!

    Thanks.

      I’m so happy to hear that Annie! I haven’t tried but I think it worth experimenting with syrup? Pure Maple syrup is vegan.

    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!

      Hi Sarah! I hope you love this recipe! The onions get mixed in with all of the vegetables. The sauce has enough sodium but you are welcome to add more if you would like.

      You’ll see after you taste it, there is no need for any salt or pepper! There is enough in the ingredients and is delicious as is! Enjoy, we all did!

      You cannot go wrong if you follow the recipe Sarah. The onions are in step number 4. You must have missed it. And correct, no salt needed unless you are using low sodium soy sauce. Or you just love tons of salt.
