    Always good and easy. It's super customizable and reheats well. Once you've bought the ingredients one time most of them last for another three or four batches. I've even started growing green onions and storing them in the freezer for this one. Seriously a staple in my meal planner!

    Ok... I just made this tonight... The title does not disappoint!! The only adjustment I made was to add more sesame oil and finished it off with soya sauce & green onions... WOW!! We absolutely loved it!!

    Definitely good. Could use a bit more flavor so added some spicy sauce.

    Family favorite! We grilled mildly seasoned chicken the day before so I just shredded some of that. I used a sweet onion and 3 eggs just for personal preference. Great way to add some veggie intake!

    Fantastic very delicious
    I have my husband grab a rotisserie chicken and two boxes of white rice from a Chinese takeout on his way home from work. Dinner is done in 15 minutes. And if I’m especially tired that day I hand out paper plates and a fork for a one course dinner meal and no one has complained yet. It’s sooo easy and totally yummy. Throw their paper plate away put their fork in the dishwasher-minimal mess!

    Really well! Be prepared to use a lot more soy sauce than it calls for!

    Super easy to make. I didn’t measure a thing. Great basic recipe that can be changed to meet any taste

    This is absolutely better than take out!!! And the sesame oil is a must - don't try to use just what is in your pantry - you won't get the flavor you need!

    I think it's a very good recipe. Very flavorful if you make it right. And I didn't even add in the chicken!
