this was delicious. I omitted the almonds because I didn't have them on hand. Otherwise made just as written. Thanks Kitten

This is a nice combination of ingredients, colorful and crunchy. I do think the 1" pieces of chicken need to be cooked longer than the recommended 2 minutes, or cut the pieces smaller in order to thoroughly cook in 2 minutes. We found the sauce a bit bland so I added some sweet chili sauce. With the addition of a little spice we found it quite good.
