As a whole, my family liked this: 'weird, but I like it' said daughter #1, ' I'd give it 6 out of 5 stars!' raves my husband, and daughter #2 said, I like it and would eat it again if the sauce was a dip and the chicken was plain.' Me--chef in residence, give it 4 bright stars!

Extremely flavorful bordering on rich. Definitely serve with a refreshing palate cleanser such as cucumbers, yogurt, or fresh cold water! I served it with plain white rice. Basmati or Jasmine rice are recommended, but I used what I had on hand. Also a green salad as a side for nutrition and color.

The substitutions I made: used dry ginger instead of grated fresh gingerroot and reconstituted lemon juice, adjusted accordingly. Beautiful color and easy to make.

Next time I may add peas, back off on the cayenne pepper, and use fresh ginger root and fresh lemon juice from real lemons. Thanks for this recipe!
