Great flavor, and took no time to make. I omitted the bamboo shoots that I didn't have on hand. Besides the green bell peppers, I also added half red bell pepper to make the dish look more colorful.

Served it with some brown rice, and it was delicious. Well balanced flavor and texture make it a great weekday supper.

Half the directions are missing. Would be nice to know how to mix the cornstarch solution and when to add the other veggies.

Thanks for the comment! Just edited the recipe. All the vegetables should be added together with chicken and onions. In the direction, it does say that "At end of cooking time, uncover wok, add thoroughly mixed cornstarch-water mixture, cook until gravy forms." Hope this helps, and happy cooking :)
