    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Although the original of this recipe is for a flavorful Peruvian chicken dish using the very hot aji pepper, I've toned it down considerably for my own protection by using jalapeno! My apologies to any Peruvians or aji fans who might come across this version, but my insides would never handle that much heat! And, although it is traditionally served over butter-flavored potatoes & slices of hard-cooked eggs, I've chosen to use brown rice.

      Loved this dish. Although it didn't blow my socks off, they sure ended up down around my ankles! A little time consuming, but IMO worth it. I did use an extra jalapeno, as we do like a little heat sometimes. Rice was a great choice to have with this. Will make again, you can be sure. Made for My-3-Chefs 2008.

      Altho' this sounded like a great meal, it just didn't do much for me or the Peanut Gallery. I served it with long-grain brown rice (fried to perfection!). I DID like the walnuts in the meat/sauce and I added extra garlic cuz that's what we like. *ZWT4 - South America*
