The directions need a little help

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 :)


Is the soy sauce mixed with the cornstarch mixture?

about 5 years ago

The soy sauce should be added with cornstarch mixture together. You can just mix the soy sauce with the cornstarch mixture as well. Hope this helps and happy cooking :)



Very bland. Missing something.
