This is a Hawaiian chicken stir fry called hekka. It's easy to make and the flavours are pretty intense!
Used different ingredients. Following some of the recommendations I read, I added garlic to the ginger before browning. Also, I reduced the sugar by half. For vegetables I also added mangetout, bean sprouts and celery instead of bamboo shoots. We enjoyed the flavours, although I would like for the sauce to be a little thicker. I'm thinking next time I will try adding a little corn flour to thicken at end of cooking time. Also, instead of regular onion, I think I will add spring onion for more colour. - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! This recipe is incredible, the flavours and textures combine very well to create a very tasty and comforting dish. I made only minimal changes: used chicken thighs instead of breasts, reduced the amount of sugar to about 5T and used about 4 big slices of ginger instead of grating it (left them in the pot the whole time.) Don't skimp on the watercress, watercress always shrinks when you cook it. This recipe will be a permanent addition to my collection. - 18 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Very delicious. The taste reminds me of Yakisoba. In the future I would not add as much sugar as recommended. In addition to the veggies in the recipe, I added mangetout,chanterelle mushrooms and baby pak choi. - 18 Jul 2008
