Writes Candy Snyder from Salem, Oregon, "Whether you serve these moist and tender chicken strips as an appetizer or main dish, they're sure to satisfy your hungry bunch. The five-spice powder and red pepper flakes add a bit of zip."

    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.
