Excellent dish. Easy to put together. I used all frozen vegetables. I used sliced almonds last time but I’m going to chop my soy wasabi whole almonds tonight. Sadly chow mein noodles aren’t available in my local grocery stores right now with the holidays. I used Foster Farm chicken fingers. They are so good and don’t taste like chicken nuggets.

This is the best copy cat recipe I've gotten from him. I had trouble making the sauce at first. I found that you take it off when the bubbles look like a bubble gum bubble. It thickens more after it sits a while.

This is my mom's favorite! When she arrived home I served a plate. She saw it and asked, "oh you got take out?" I told her I did. Once she was done, I asked her what she thought and her response was, as delicious as always. she could not believe I made it! Spot on.

This is amazing. I never thought it would taste like the real thing but it does! I made everything exactly like the recipe says (except the veggies as I order this dish without veggies when we eat out) and my husband raves about it. I've made it three times this month!

I thought this was really good although maybe a tad sweeter than the restaurant version but that might have been because I put too much sauce on the rice and chicken. The rice was wonderful- I used long grain brown rice. I also added cornstarch to thicken up.:) My hubby loved it! I used a steamed bag of veggies to save time.

I love this recipe, the whole family loves it! I took chicken and cut it into bite sized pieces and than fried them. It was wonderful and it another quick way to make this tasty dish.

Absolutely delicious! I would make this again and again. Wouldn't change a thing, but would definitely make more to feed a larger family

Its one of my family's favorites. The texture of the rice is perfect, the sauce tastes the same though I double the ingredients to have plenty. Its a GREAT recipe.
