This is an easy chicken stir fry and my kids love it. I've also made it with cubed pork. Serve over rice.

I have made this a couple times really good recipe. only thing I did different is I used velvet chicken. I love this recipe-02 Dec 2012

This is easy to make and delicious! My husband, who doesn't even like spinach, yummed this up too. I loved it as-is. My husband would have liked more of a sauce to pour over the rice. He used a bottled Thai sauce as an immediate fix. Would love anyone's suggestions of a great, easy sauce to make to pair with this!-18 Apr 2012

We really enjoyed this dish. I read other reviews before I started cooking and I made little changes to make more sauce. Marinade was made of 3Tbl spoons soy sauce, 2Tbl spoons water and 1Tbl spoon sugar. I drained chicken and saved marinade before I fried it in 2Tbl spoons of oil. I poured marinade back to fully cooked chicken just before I added spinach. I think any other sauce would ruin the unique flavor of this very good recipe.-27 Oct 2013
