I didn't have light soy sauce so I added half a cup of water and it came out great. I added red capsicum, carrot and onion. I'm a cook on a cattle station in remote NT Australia and all the boys I cooked for loved it. Thanks for sharing! - 29 Jul 2012


This recipe tastes so nice, by all rights it should be much more complicated to prepare. I used about 500g of chicken tenderloins and bulked it out with finely sliced carrot, onion and capsicum. I used 1 tsp of ground ginger. My kids were a little dubious looking at it but after the first mouthful were saying 'Yum, this is delicious'. An easy meal that will become a family staple in our home I think. - 23 Mar 2011


Used different ingredients. I added half a chopped red capsicum, half a green chopped capsicum and half a chopped onion to the sauce for colour, as well as two tablespoons of vinegar for a little added tang. - 25 Aug 2009
