A light, easy, and delicious combination of chicken and vegetables with a distinct oriental flavor. When I make this dish, I like to serve it with fried rice. Try Sue L.'s # 38748.

Directions See How It's Made
- Combine filling ingredients in medium bowl.
- Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl.
- Pour sauce over filling and mix well.
- Combine all of the peanut sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat to a slow boil; whisking often until all of the ingredients have melted together. Cool to room temperature. If sauce gets too thick, thin with a little bit of milk.
