This was a good recipe but I found myself having to add more of every spice. It didn't have enough flavor at first. I basically doubled the sauce and it came out flavorful. I served it with snow peas over rice.

Wonderful dish...I added 1/2 cup fresh sliced mushrooms and left out the peanuts.

This was very good & very quick & easy. I have used the sauce from this recipe with several other stir fry meals. Nice and spicy!

This is a favorite in our family! I substitute 1 package of firm tofu for the chicken and it tastes delicious. When I use tofu I like to double the sauce recipe so that the tofu picks up the additional flavor. Yum!

This was really yummy. I didn't have any ginger root, so I ended up using ground ginger. I had this last night for dinner and today my stomach is telling me that there were a few too many red peppers in this .. for me anyway. I will make this again, but perhaps will substitute half the red peppers for zucchini or broccoli or something.

This is my first recipe from this web site. I loved it and will make it again! It was very quick and easy.

This was awesome! You don't really need the peanuts - skip this ingredient if you're trying to cut back on the fat. Wish that I had doubled for left-overs!

This was very easy to make and tasted really good too.
