From Simple & Delicious. You could probably also use popcorn fish or other frozen, breaded or battered, bite-sized meat or seafood or even Quorn nuggets for vegetarians. I served it with Egg Drop Soup #185685 and Fried Rice #185688, plus some chicken & vegetable egg rolls. It's very delicious and simple to throw together. There's a lot of sauce, which was great for dipping the egg rolls into. The serving sizes for this and the other two recipes were fairly generous, too--we ate heartily and still had leftovers for DH's lunch. My toddler couldn't get enough of the chicken in the sauce (though I wish he'd done better with the fruit and veggies!).
