I liked this it was very good. Bit of a fuss to make and it makes a LOT. I added more vegies cabage and others and a can of pineapple. Make sure you mix the corn starch in the last cup of water before you put it in. The breading for the chicken was way too thick I added some white wine to thin it out. I only used two chicken breasts there may not have been enough breading for 4.
