Chicken, Asparagus, and Mushroom Skillet
This is a quick, easy and very tasty dish. I only gave it 4 stars because I had to add a lot more lemon juice and wine. The liquid cooked down really fast so I used a total of 3 tbl wine & 3 tbl lemon juice. Just kept the ratio equal. Just know that you can't add the extra liquid until later or the chicken won't brown it will steam. If it is too thin, add another tbl of butter to thicken or resv one of the tbls the recipe calls for until you add the extra liquid. I used 1 Tbl fresh parsley because I had it on hand. I did use 2 cups of mushrooms per the suggestion. I have been looking for a new simple but tasty chicken recipe and this is it! Thank you Grneyedmustang; this must be the next best thing to being in your kitchen :)

Shrimp Tempura
Great tempura batter. Cooked up very nice and stayed on the shrimp! Light and not greasy tasting at all. Dry shrimp well and make sure everything is cold. I chilled water in the freezer for a bit and kept it in fridge between batches. I also used oil in place of shortening - I was out. I did not marinate the shrimp first since I wanted them as dry as possible. Can use pre-cooked shrimp if you are desperate since they only take a minute to cook. Used Asian Orange Chicken recipe from this site for the sauce - very good!

Asian Orange Chicken
Great recipe. I discovered my ginger and lemons were too far gone to use and powdered ginger was fine. I just subbed more OJ in place of the lemon juice. I didn't have time to marinate and it still had great flavor. I use half cornstarch and half flour because it seems to crisp better. As others suggested, I added a drop of sesame oil at the end. Just a drop! Added walnuts, pineapple and waterchestnuts with a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top just before serving. Restaurant quality, for sure.
