(That folks is engineers way of ribbing his friend and co-worker, Frank.) Posted just as he typed it to EAT-L and mc-recipe 8/29/96 by Brenda Adams. By the way, it is terrific!!!!! It is a pretty standard recipe, more like a stir fry than the typical G.Ts Chicken that you get in restaurants (we love that too!! ) This is less fattening. Feel free to edit it, change it, eat it, and pass it around. Frank and Jerry will get a kick out of that!
