I can't wait to try this since this will save me a fortune in take out. Not to mention, I can add more chicken which is what my kids fight over!

Ok, I've made this 4 or 5 times now and my family LOVES it. Truly better than take out (well, other than the fact you have to cook it yourself). My only advice is to double the recipe. I have 5 in my family and it barely feeds 3 of my growing kids. If I double it, then I even a little leftover for a lunch the next day. And YES, it is GREAT leftover!

Question: Could this recipe be frozen?

This really is yum-yum! My family isn't big on broccoli so I make up 4 cups of veggies - snow peas, carrots, celery, some broccoli. We all enjoy this and I barely have leftovers for lunch the next day.

I added carrots, green pepper and sesame seeds to this. Love it!

Huge hit with family. Doubled the recipe. Kids wanted the leftovers for lunch. Will probably reduce the sugar next time. The hoisin sauce seemed pretty sweet.
