This was a pretty basic stir fry recipe, but it was quite tasty.  I made this for an adult class and we added an extra cup of sliced carrots, and about 1/2 tsp of red chili flakes for some extra color and zing.  All positive comments, and no one even balked at the whole wheat noodles (which people do complain about, sometimes).  It was so good, I made it again that night for my family's dinner!

This one looks very good!

Another wonderful recipe everyone ate a lot of!  Super easy to cook.  We used tofu instead of the chicken and then fresh broccoli.  And got really cheap sesame seeds in the Hispanic section of our grocery store.

Yummo! This is a great recipe!
