    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is so easy to prepare and the taste is incredible. I've adapted this recipe from More Long-life Chinese Cooking From Madame Wong and though it calls for deep-frying the shrimp, or chicken, I usually stir-fry it to make it easier and more healthy. I LOVE this recipe!

      after a long busy day it was late, i was tired and everyone wanted to know what we were having for dinner. i had planned to make this tonight, but much earlier, and by now i didn't want to cook. but- how silly, in 10 minutes i/we had a fabulous dinner. i made white rice in the steamer, then started this last night i had cleaned the shrimp and made a stock with 3 lbs of shells and tails. so i used 1/4 shrimp stock in place of the chicken broth. i stir fried everything in a hot wok with peanut oil, i also used rice wine vinegar instead of red wine for a more authentic flavor-- this was great, a bit spicy for some, but we loved it! thanks for a great recipe, i will be making this often, but maybe next time i'll only use 8 thai bird chiles, dd counted :)

      Thought I would try an online recipe to perfect my dish. Way to greasy. I did not like this at all. Too many intervals to remove one ingredient at a time and deep fry down to the chilie pepper. Someone else may have better luck.

      Quick, easy and delicioius. I followed the directions as written and it turned out beautifully. DH asked for the leftovers for lunch. I served this with steamed rice and stir fried veggies.
