MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2013

"This recipe is great for on those days when you want to eat something a little light. I used 1tbs of rice wine vinegar, 1/8 tsp. fresh ginger, 2 tsp light virgin olive oil to sauté the chicken with 1 garlic clove minced. For my vegetarian family I omit the chicken with firm tofu sautéed with 2 tbs of sesame oil & 1 garlic clove minced and a dash of cayenne pepper before adding to salad. I have to admit even done this way tastes very good."
