    Pretty good. Next time I'll add some garlic; it seemed a bit bland.

    A little bland, but easy. I loved her tip about using cold rice. I think next time I'll add some ginger and garlic.

    It wasn’t awful but not super flavorful. If I make it again I would add teriyaki or some other sauce besides soy sauce

    I cook this all the time. I usually leave out the chicken and it’s so easy and delicious. I use 4 eggs and extra soy sauce.

    Delicious! I overdid it a little with the sesame oil as I used it for both the chicken and the veg- next time I’ll olive oil it a little. Other than my mistake it was perfect.
