We really liked this dish (even my 13 month old!) I modified this recipe a bit. Instead of veg. oil, I used peanut oil (it's all about flavor!) I started by stir-frying garlic (I think stir-frying ginger with the garlic would be a good idea too). As everything was stir-frying together, I added 2 TBS rice vinegar, 4 TBS Curry powder,and 1 tsp. of sugar. I also used brocolli, carrots, and water chestnuts.



I thought this was pretty tasty-except for the amount of oil used-10 tablespoons! I cut it down to about 3-1 tbsp canola oil to cook the chicken, then 1 tbsp to stir fry the veggies. I didn't add a full tbsp of the sesame oil-I feel it's not really needed since it's pretty flavorful. I also would have added a clove or two of garlic and another tsp or so of curry.



I really enjoyed this recipe, you could even adapt it with additional ingredients,my family loves mushrooms so I added this to our dinner. It got great reviews with everyone.
