Chicken Lo Mein
What a great recipe! Turned out perfect! I adjusted a few things to personal preference (or what was available), such as - *Used flank steak instead of chicken (my friend is crazy about flank steak, but I really want to try it with chicken now also!). *Used peanut oil rather than sesame oil. *We used a thinner japanese noodle in the asian section (I think next time though I want an even thinner noodle). *I omitted the mushrooms, didn't sound like my personal taste. *I added a whole orange (for color) bell pepper and about an equal amount of white onion as well. Also probably about a cup or so of shredded cabbage (will probably add more next time). *Oh, I also added way more garlic than suggested (but I'm just a freak for garlic!). I realized after that some thin carrot strips and some water chestnuts would have been a great addition, also. I only made these adjustments because of personal tastes, and with the overall recipe intact, it was amazing! Must try!

Chinese Restaurant-Style Sesame Chicken
I did not like this recipe. It was really lacking any "punch" in the flavor...and the flavor from the sauce does not come out very well. I think there should probably be something sweeter added into it - maybe some orange juice to make it like an Orange Sesame Chicken. All in all, won't try it again (did inspire me to try other sesame chicken recipes though).
