Peter Wendt's Note:
I had frozen chicken and crashed the pantry to see what I had on hand..... We make Mexican and Asian food all the time, so I had ingredients on hand I've done this and variations of this cubed wrapped in foil on the grill, marinated overnight in fridge, cubed in a wok for all told, about 10 times. every variation turns out great..using the black bean garlic with chicken for us you cannot go wrong... My Kids like spicy... I made this recipe for you' all with the "spicy" being optional. The taste of this dish reminds me of being at a Asian restaurant, with Mexican guitar music playing.... really!!!! it does sound bad I guess....It's worth the time believe me. You should see our pantry.... all kinds of sounds emit from it.... all trying to get into a dish of mine. Watch your second part bake time.. If you are looking for a "set it and forget it" 30min meal look for other venues at recipzaar.. If you are willing to test drive this baby your family or friends will be singing your praises. That's what makes the effort pay off.. happy cooking!!! PW
