Family favorite!! I. Added water chestnuts instead of baby corn. Adding other veggies works great. Once ingredients are together it is very easy to make. Love it!

My favorite in this category. But I'm pretty sure it is the same as my Betty Crocker recipe book.

Loved it. Just the right tastes. Quick and easy. I added fresh brocolli, green pepper and carrots to frozen mix of stir fry veggies. This is a keeper.

My family loved this. I doubled the sauce because my family likes the sauce for rice. I would marinated the meat in the sauce next time for extra favor. And it was easy.
