Extremely tender chicken is smothered in a dark, flavorful sauce in this easy and elegant entree. It's so nice to find another tantalizing way to serve chicken. Sprinkled with almonds, this is a dish I proudly serve to family or guests. -Ruth Seitz, Columbus Junction, Iowa

"This was fantastic. I made it with just chicken thighs as that is what I had, and it was wonderful. The sauce is perfect for drizzling over rice and vegetables served on the side. Everyone, including the kids, really enjoyed this one."

"We really enjoyed this. I used chicken breasts and added more garlic. I believe you can never have too much garlic. The chicken was juicy and flavorful. Loved the Asian flavors. I served it with some rice and broccoli. It was a very easy week day meal!"
