Absolutely wonderful! Quick and easy to make. Fresh, flavorful and doesn't taste like it's good for you (but it is). Not overly saucy, but the spicy peanut flavor is definitely there. Used leftover shredded chicken, bottled refrigertaed ginger, and multigrain tortillas. I love those Cooking Light recipes! Thanks for sharing!
Great recipe! I'll definitely use the sauce in this recipe for other things. Needs to be thickened a bit though b/c it was a little messy.
