Reviews for Chicken & Rice Salad with Peanut Sauce
"Expensive ingredients. Would rather make with fresh chicken and rice but since the flavor was only okay, I would say next time I will order take out because that will be better/cheaper."
"Very good. I used broccoli slaw instead of coleslaw."
"Very fast and delicious. It reminds me somewhat of the Thai Crunch salad from California Pizza Kitchen."
