Reviews for Garlic Ginger Chicken Strips
"I didn't care for these. I think basil is the wrong spice, and the recipe calls for too much 5 spice powder. Also, it would probably be a lot better saut?ed in oil than broiled. I will not make again."
"I made this for my roommate. Simply put...it was wonderful!"
