    lazyme's Note:

    From Chinese Cookery a nice chicken dish that can be served either at room temperature or chilled. The cucumbers add a nice contrast to the spicy sauce. You can serve this over pasta or rice.

      We really thought this recipe was very good. My husband loves chicken in just about any form and this was no exception. I served it with a fresh fruit salad. I plan to make another batch and freeze it for when it's really hot outside. Thanks for this recipe that is now on a list of meals that I will make again and again.

      We really enjoyed this! My husband always orders hunan chicken when we eat at a Chinese restaurant so I wanted to try and recreate that for him here at home. I did not have any sesame paste so I just used peanut butter instead. I used brown rice to serve the dish with since that is what I had on hand. We thought it was delicious. Hubby said that if I had used the sesame paste it would have tasted exactly the way the restaurants make it. Thanks for the recipe!
