This was a good, quick meal. I omitted the chili peppers this time only because I was serving this to a child, but I thought it still tasted very good without the heat. My husband especially enjoyed the flavor of this, which we served over Chinese noodles. The only thing lacking was color - next time I will saute some sliced fresh vegetables (mushrooms, carrots, scallions, and peppers) and add them to the dish as well.One note: I did not simmer the chicken for the 15 minutes as directed. I was afraid that the chicken would dry out if simmered that long, and so I tested a piece after the first 5 minutes - it was just right and fully cooked at that point.
