    this has become a favourite of mine…even made it on stove top. Used stir fry veg as well and other times what vegies were in recipe…I have made it without ginger and still worked a treat….nice and easy for a mummy who is looking for a lazy but healthy meal and left overs taste great

    This is a beautiful meal
    Love the flavours of the sauce.
    I added some frozen stir fry veggies to use up.
    Nectarine I will add some water chestnuts towards the end of cooking.
    Winner winner chicken dinner ?????

    Tasty recipe. Although I cooked it for 4 hours on high.
    I doubled the amount of sauce mixture and I added a handful of raw cashews before serving.
    Easiest way to make a “stir fry” ever!
