One of my favorites! My husband loves sweet Thai chili sauce and puts it on a lot of things. So, this is one of his favorite meals. Let me know if you try it!
The situation is a sweet sauce do we add to it or is it on the side can we use a couscous instead of rice or or it's just signature to the recipe I want to try it soon and share the results thank you

Rosseyes I make it just as the recipe states, and do serve it with rice. You could serve it on whatever you like, though. We love it! My husband eats Panda Express a lot when he's at the office, so wanted to recreate some at home.
