  1. Great recipe Cynthia! 

    I love stir-fry chicken, easiest to make, it’s universal and it’s also very easy to match with other recipes. I think I could totally pull off your recipe for tonight, my relatives coming over and I can’t wait to taste it especially with the ginger add on, it’s been a while since I added that. I realized that you use skinless chicken, would it still be okay if I keep the skin too? It’s nice to have that crispy effect 🙂

  2. Sounds delicious, Cynthia! Love any stir fry and will most definitely have to add this recipe to the list to try. I love how you incorporated the video as reading the recipe just doesn’t do it justice. I am always down to try new recipes to cook as I do love cooking (when it happens). In the video you were very trustful as I find extremely important in a cook. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. The video was actually done by my sister-in-law Yuhong Sun.  She has a number of instructional videos for traditional Chinese dishes so if you subscribe to her channel, you’ll never miss a video!
