"This is a tasty vegetarian version of a Chinese classic. You won't even be able to tell it isn't chicken! Seitan is made from wheat gluten and is very high in protein and low in fat. I recommend using a chicken-style variety." — LITTLEBOO1982

We made this tonight and it was super yummy. Next time we make it, we'll probably use more vegetables, but its a keeper for sure.
Maybe I just thought I liked sweet and sour dishes, because I didn't care for this at all.
This was the first time I had used seitan and only had an 8 oz package, so I added mushrooms, broccoli, baby carrots, and water chestnuts. I also served with a organic brown and wild rice mix, flavored with tamari sauce. My husband and 19 yr old son loved it (altho neither knew it was vegetarian instead of chicken!) I will definitely make regularly now.
Very delicious. Our store didn't have Seitan, so I used frozen Veggie Chicken Strips and it was delicious. I made it for dinner with my parents (not vegan) and the loved it. Even my super meat eater father went for seconds! Wouldn't change a thing with this recipe!
This was really good, my boyfriend (who has been known to scoff at my attepmts to "vegetarianize" meals) ate two servings! The only complaint was that it was a little too sweet, so next time I may cut down on the brown sugar a little bit.
Quite tasty. Both my bf and I loved it.
Did not turn out the same color as the one in the photo though, ours was brown.
A great find. Will be making this again and again. I use fructose instead of brown sugar.
This was good. The sauce tasted great. I used a canned seitan which I didn't really care for but that doesn't reflect on the quality of the recipe. I also added extra vegetables. Yummy. Will make this again.
