    Altered ingredient amounts. Works perfectly stir fried instead of baked  -  03 Jan 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. Reduced the djion mustard recommended amount by half as it overpowered the dish.  -  27 Apr 2010


    Quick and easy for a midweek meal. Just make sure you half the amount of mustard, like other reviewers have said.  -  31 Aug 2011
