“This is my own creation! I did this one night when we really needed to go grocery shopping! Makes a good appetizer (without the broccoli) or dinner. You can adjust the heat in this recipe, though I highly reccommend that you try it like this first. I don't like heat and this dish uses it as a flavor rather than for actual "heat". Do be aware that the longer this sits the hotter it might get so taste test your leftovers! Also, I did add a negligable amount of corn starch to thicken the sauce just a little bit. You might need this, you might not.”
