Better Than Takeout Asian Recipes
“I made this chicken for my family on Friday night and it was delicious! The sauce is amazing, and cooking the chicken in it made it so tender. I served it with basmati rice and steamed veggies, and drizzled the sauce over everything, which tasted wonderful. Thank you so much for the great recipe!” – Laura
“Made this last night and my friends LOVED it! Better than going to a restaurant. I doubled the sauce recipe because I also made a stir fry to go with it. I spiraled zucchini and squash into noodles, then sautéed them with leeks and snow peas. Epic meal! Thanks so much!” – Debbie
“Mine was a triumph. As good as any Chinese restaurant or takeaway and much cheaper too. Grateful for the recipe and will definitely repeat.” – Julia
“20 stars! This was awesome! My husband SO had doubts, but he said “Save this recipe we are definitely doing this again”. The steak sauce was amazing. We subbed out onions with carrots and the packaged ramen with Lo mein noodles and some beef broth. Thank you so much for the recipe, I can’t wait to tweak it some more and eat ramen in versus going out and buying it.” – Alexis
