"i'm not really sure why this was labeled as a Panara bread copy-cat. Panara does not have mandarin oranges, cucumber, peanuts, jalapenos and especially not onion."

"I made a few changes because of personal preference~~ no jalapenos or onions and used sunflower seeds instead of the chopped peanuts. I cooked the chicken on a stovetop grill and used a chicken grilling seasoning. It does make a lot and I can't wait until the next family gathering to make it again!"

""This was so flavorful!" My husband is not a fan of chicken and these were his words. Next time, I might try marinating the chicken (or cooking it differently as I parboiled it). Other than that it was PERFECT."

"We loved this. My family loves Asian inspired foods and this just was the most delicious glammed up way to have chicken ever! We are eating lighter and lots more chicken so a recipe like this is a treasure to me"
