I cannot say enough good things about this recipe! First, it is so can add and subtract veggies as you please. Second, it is so easy...highly recommended for first time stir-fry cooks. Lastly, and most importantly, it was soooo good. We all loved it. My 5yr old devoured her helping as did my hubby and roommate. Served over brown rice and next time, I will have to double the recipe because we couldn't get enough! Thank you for sharing this recipe Mar!

This is definitely not a stir-fry...more like a soup fry. I did not care for this at all, but my baby girl did eat a lot of it wasn't a complete waste. I didn't have any cream of mushroom, so I substituted cream of chicken and threw in a jar of mushrooms. Maybe that's what went wrong. I also added some ground pork because I didn't have quite 1 pound of chicken. Usually stir-fries are "dry" not moist. If your short on time and don't have much in the cupboard..then maybe. Just make sure you have the pizza guy on speed dial.

Like the other cooks, I used olive oil instead of butter and sauteed small chicken strips in three cloves of garlic, 1/2 an onion, paprika, salt, pepper and soy sauce. When the chicken was no longer pink I added one can of mushroom condensed soup (no water. Serve this over rice for a delicious meal. My fiance hates to be experimented on, but he loved it. No leftovers. Very quick this way.

This recipe was bland! What a waste of chicken. Yuck, how could anyone call this stir-fry? UGH! Never again.

This is not a stir-fry recipe. Using a can of cream of anything soup is just unheard of when cooking stir fry!

I used carrots,onion,small can of mushroom pieces,frozen brocoli and frozen green beans and mushroom soup w/ a 1/2 can of milk instead of water. Also salt,pepper and minced garlic. Severe over herb and butter Lipton's Rice. I guess some people lost thier taste buds because i thought this dish tasted great!

This was edible, but certainly nothing near a 5 star recipe. I found it very bland and unappealing. If you do make this, definitely do not add the water.

This was very easy and quick! I used golden mushroom soup and did not add any water. Also, I added soy sauce, fresh garlic, green onions, and mushrooms. My husband had two big helpings so I know I will be making this again soon!
