Chinese Takeout-on-a-stick Recipe

I like to serve chicken and broccoli with rice, along with a side of pineapple or other fresh fruit. Leftovers (if there are any) are great the next day when used in a salad or wrapped in a flour tortilla with a little mayonnaise. —Bethany Seeley, Warwick, Rhode Island

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 10, 2014

Very quick and easy enough for a week night meal. I broiled it on low for 10 minutes and served with microwavable rice bowls.

This is the best marinade. Will definitely make it again. I let it marinate for about an hour.
