      This was pretty good. I used one chicken breast for just one serving, but made all of the sauce since I love it over the rice. I could hardly taste the red pepper flakes so added more at the table. This doesn't make very much sauce - even for one serving, so I will definitely make more next time. All in all a good and easy recipe. Thanks Chef Gorete for a nice meal. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
