This recipe is based on a Westernised 'Moo Goo Gai Pan' which is a traditional Cantonese dish. Chicken with a variety of vegetables in a stir fry.
This turned out verrrry good, I was scared to be the first to try it but I am glad that I did. My grandma always orders moo goo gai pan when we eat out at chinese, so I wanted to try this recipe out and hopefully surprise her one day! I think she will be happily surprised with this one! I did change the veggies up a little bit to my liking and how it's served at our local chinese place. I added a head of broccoli and a can of stir fry corn. I left out the bok choy and used bamboo shoots in place of the water chestnuts. I used frozen peas and they worked just fine. For the sauce I did use powdered ginger and a little more than 1/2 cup of chicken broth. I had some cooking white wine that I've had forever but it didn't seem to ruin anything. I added about 1 tbls of soy sauce just because, not really sure why. Me and my mom both enjoyed this, will make again. Thanks for the great recipe. - 20 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious! I used chicken tenderloins, making it really easy to slice. My grocer was out of snow peas, so I used sugar snap peas instead. Everything else stayed exactly according to recipe, although I doubled it. Such an easy, healthy, and good recipe! Next time I think I will add something to give it some heat like red pepper flakes. - 02 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Eh, this was all right. For all the work I did, it would've been easier to just call the Chinese food place. The taste was bland, something is missing, I'm not sure what. I had to triple the sauce and after it was plated added some soy sauce, which made it taste better. The plus to this recipe is that you can use whatever veggies you want. I added carrots, broccoli, and bamboo, but didn't use bok choy (didn't have any at the store). Another plus, it is a lot healthier then the take out! - 28 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
