NOTES : "Given to me, originally, by Frank Berry. By modifying, I have improved this dish." (That folks is engineer's way of ribbing his friend and co-worker, Frank.) Posted just as he typed it to EAT-L and mc-recipe 8/29/96 by Brenda Adams. By the way, it is terrific!!!!! It is a pretty standard recipe, more like a stir fry than the typical G.T's Chicken that you get in restaurants (we love that too!! ) This is less fattening. Feel free to edit it, change it, eat it, and pass it around. Frank and Jerry will get a kick out of that! Posted to CHILE-HEADS DIGEST V3 #099 Date: Tue, 10 Sep 1996 08:34:55 -0400
