This is a healthy Thai dish. It is very delicious and would be nicer if you add more colorful vegetables such as red peppers. Also you can deep fry the chicken instead. I actually learned this dish in my own home when I took a thai cooking course from Harmony Thai Cuisine (http://harmonythaicuisine.co.uk)

Great! Very simple and tasty, though I used bok choi instead of greens, and shitaki mushrooms rather than mange tout. Will make again.

Wonderful :).... i did not find mangetout and chinese leaves so i left them out... i used 100ml of Hoisin sauce for 2 servings and i covered the chicked in cornflour before frying.... it came soooooo tasty... and then i complemented the dish with some instant noodles on the side.. i would recommend it

I changed the Chinese leaves for chicory. Did not have Hoisin sauce so simply used a shake of spicy chicken seasoning. I served it with a jacket potato and it was quick and delicious - but I'm afraid a stir-fry was too adventurous for my husband. He spent his time picking out the bits he could eat! I wish he would try something a little more out of the ordinary. I sometimes cook something for myself seperately if I have the time.

Lovely tasting dish. I used the remains of a cabbage in place of the chinese leaves (cheaper!). I also used more hoisin sauce than it says and added water to make more sauce. Added some egg noodles for the last couple of minutes to make a delicious complete meal.

I was a bit dubious at first as i assumed this would have hardly any taste, pleased to say that i was very wrong and i loved it, easy and quick to make.
