Hi, This is a fabulous recipe me and my Daughter enjoy the odd Chinese but during lockdown it’s been hard to find one to deliver to my location. I purchased an Actifry this week and have been dabbling with some recipes and this one really turned out well. Extremely tasty easy to follow and went down a treat. Even had the obligatory leftover Chinese for breakfast the day after. I would rate this one 10 out of 10.
