      This is delicious! The only change I made was I used 3 small chicken breasts... Made for ZWT # 6!

      Great simple and healthy chicken dish! DH loves anything with peanut sauce so this was a hit for him. I did have to add a little rice wine to my sauce as it came out pretty thick. Loved the spicy with the chicken and cool cucumber. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011

      Bang BANG!!! This is awesome! Very healthy and a technique that I'm glad I know now! I have never pounded out chicken AFTER it's cooked and it worked really well. The final product was fresh and fantastic. I will be making this again for sure! Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks Tanner's Mom in Virginia! :)
