    This dish was delicious and had such a beautiful presentation. I added extra shiitake mushrooms and snap peas, and when I make it next time I will double the broth and add a lot more veggies. This would be good with broccoli, carrots, tofu, etc. I did buy the fresh chinese-style noodles in my store's produce dept., but I would sub udon or ramen noodles next time.

    I thought this was just ok. I admit, I forgot the limes at the end. But if I decided to make this again, I'd add some sliced green onions and some chopped basil or cilantro over the top. It just needed something. Kind of bland.

    Made this for dinner, and the bf gave it a solid 5 stars (I do too!). Definitely one of the best asian-esque dishes I've ever made. We might have gotten an extra punchy serrano, but this dish was anything but bland. The only change I would make is more veggies next time; I felt like the dish lacked a heartiness that would have come from some added snap peas or broccoli. I subbed veggie broth for chicken, and formed chicken cutlets by using 1 chicken breast, cutting it in 1/2 length-wise, and pounding out the two halves. Jarred minced ginger made that step easy, and we subbed angel hair pasta for the ambiguous "Chinese-style noodles." I imagine ramen would work just as well. Easily vegetarian by replacing the tofu for chicken and using veg. broth. Really enjoyed, and will be making again! :)

    I left out the pepper so my 3 yr old son could eat it & he loved it. I also enjoyed it, thought the broth had a good depth of flavor. You could certainly add other vegetables, tofu, siracha, etc. I did let the broth sit awhile with the aromatics as I made it earlier in the day & put everything together last minute.

    This was really good, comforting and satisfying. I used more mushrooms and I used spinach instead of bok choy. I felt like it could have used a little more flavor, but overall a good dish. I'll be making it again!
