There was just enuff breading for chicken so i will make some more next time (double is too much).. didnt make much changes only added maybe 1-1,5tbsp of soy sauce to give it a little depth(?) or somthing anyway it worked out great!

      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.
