This was really good. I cut up my chicken beforehand so that it would soak up all the flavors and be easier to eat. I also added some cut up asparagus, and loved it that way. I served it over orzo, instead of rice. It was delicious! I made this for Comfort Cafe!

This was a great recipe! We really liked it. I used red, yellow and green bell peppers and threw in some roasted chilies I had in the fridge! I use Tamari so I used that and also rice wine...I followed the recipe and found it to be very good. I am going to try the salmon in the future too, cuz I am always looking for salmon recipes and this should work nicely! We enjoyed our meal! Thank you, Jelly I made this for Comfort Cafe too it was the recipe of the day! :)

This made a really nice sauce which I used with salmon instead of chicken. Very flavorful! Thank you!
