Excellent. I cut back on the soy and substituted broccoli because I had it. Came together perfectly in my InstaPot on Sauté 😄

I made this dish last night, and it’s a winner. I used leftover chicken, no bacon, and added some chopped celery and red pepper for crunch and color. It’s easy and delicious.

Do you have the actual original recipe for this? The original one had brown rice and oyster sauce. The link to skinnymom is no longer valid. Thanks for help!
