This is one of those dishes I love to order from Chinese food take out. It is also a winner among kids probably because it is sweet. I was craving it one night and decided I would make it but much healthier than the traditional fried way. I would do it just like a stir fry. It turned out great everyone including my kids went back for seconds.
