Simple and yummy recipe. I will definitely make this again. Not too spicy for the kids either. Next time I will probably use chicken thighs over breast. That is a personal preference only, I find chicken breast very dry and just like dark meat better. Also, I made half the amount of dipping sauce and still had a lot left over. It is very salty so a little goes a long way.
