This did not taste as good as take out to me, but maybe it was all the changes I had to make. My whole family seemed to like it quite well. My husband asked for seconds. I did not add that much hot sauce at first, because the kids don't like spicy food, but I added more for myself and it was really good then. I added two extra eggs, used shrimp instead of chicken and substituted the vegetables I had on hand, sugar snap peas and a carrot, pea and green bean mixture for the onion, haricots verts and bell pepper. I also did not have the chili-garlic sauce. So, I added minced onions and a little garlic powder, and used Frank's RedHot sauce.
