very delicious, though I am glad we ended up not having light corn syrup on hand as the dish was sweet and a bit sauce heavy as it was. used zucchini and sugar snap peas instead of mushrooms and snow peas. will definitely have again!!

Good. I found a similar recipe that calls for only 1/4 cup of corn syrup (or golden syrup) which seemed a *much* less scary quantity! It also uses water chestnuts instead of mushrooms.

My DH made this for dinner the other night and it was really good - but even better the next day. We cut the recipe in half, but used all the garlic, more fresh ginger than called for (probably 1 tsp or so) and only 1/4 cup of corn syrup (glad we did, or it would have been waaaay too sweet). The end result was tasty and healthy; we probably will turn to this recipe in future if we're looking for a chicken stir fry.

My husband and I love this recipe. It is a regular meal in our house. I spice it up a little bit by adding a few shakes of red pepper flakes and I use a spicy plum sauce. I just use whatever veggies I have on hand. Thanks for the simple and tasty recipe!

The only changes I made were to use brown sugar instead of corn syrup, and I ended up having to add some water to thin out the sauce as it was too sticky and glutinous. I made this with a mushroom medley pack which included oyster, chestnut, crimini and white button mushrooms. It could do with a little kick of something spicy, but otherwise, this was decent. Thank you!

This had great flavours. The ginger and and plum sauce really work well together. All I did different was I added carrots and water chestnuts. I think next time I will try using flour instead of corn starch on the chicken, it made it a bit thicker/sticky while cooking. I also added fresh garlic and green onions while cooking the chicken.

A very good taste. I would add some more veggies with this one. I also made coconut rice which was a wonderful addition to this.

mmmmmm Yummy flavours. I admit I did add a bit more ginger then called for, omitted the syrup and added a few chili peppers. Turned out great !!!
