I'm crazy about Shrimp Lo Mein and Pepper Steak. Oh wait, can't forget about any type of fried rice. This recipe sounds awesome too, would love to try making it the Swiss Diamond Fry pan. Hmm, it's obvious it was difficult for me to choose just one dish.

I love orange chicken

My favorite Chinese food recipe is dim sum

We love Chinese food at our house . My favorite is chicken balls!

Although I love everything about Chinese food, especially while I'm eating favorite is a toss-up between Sweet n Sour Chicken and Chicken Vegetable Stir-fry. I really tried to pick just one but honestly, do love them both that much and the more veggies the better in either dish for me, please!
