skinless, boneless chicken breast half, thinly sliced
ground black pepper

Very tasty, great dish!
Only change i made was to add some sliced red peppers and some dried red pepper flakes.
Do not skip the whole almonds fried in the oil - these really give it the taste.
Not much flavor, and I consider myself pretty lenient as far as blandness is concerned. Maybe if I would have added red pepper flakes like others had suggested then it may have been saved.
This is a good basic Chinese recipe. I used beef instead of chicken since that is what I picked up at the meat store today. I added the red pepper flakes as suggested - if I hadn't it would have been WAY too bland for me. So kudos to whoever suggested that! I also added bean sprouts - they added some good crunch which I like. I used sesame oil instead of peanut - will try again when I have peanut oil. Instead of rice - I used Udon noodles which was amazing with this recipe. Play around with the veg as much as you like - you won't go wrong! oh-- I also added some garlic!
Fabulous recipe! I would rate it 10 stars if I could. Taste exactly as the one from the restaurant ;)
I used fresh ginger. It went together quickly and everyone had more than one helping.
This recipe was awesome! I kinda strayed from the recipe a bit, but the end result was amazing! I didn't have peanut oil, so I substituted with sesame oil which gave it intense aroma and flavor. I also added broccoli, carrots, sweet peppers and pimento peppers (I'm from Trinidad so we get these full flavored peppers without the heat - you can use jalapenos also). I seasoned the chicken breast before adding to the oil, using salt, black pepper, Mrs. Dash all purpose seasoning and Worcestershire sauce. (I read some reviews that said there wasn't any flavor, so I made sure that mine was gonna be full of flavor). When I turned the stove off I decided to just add about a half teaspoon of home-made pepper sauce. I'm from the Caribbean so we love to add our Caribbean flair to everything! The end result was an amazing full-flavored succulent dish that I served over basmati rice. Can't wait to do it again :-)
Not much flavor. Sorry. Don't think that I would make this again.
This was great! I didn't have peanut oil, used olive oil. It tasted like I had ordered it from the local Wok place...which was what I wanted! Thanks
