This was very tasty, however a little too spicy for us. I think next time we will use less red pepper flakes. We also think next time we will cut down on the cilantro since it seemed to be a little overwhelming for our tastes. Instead of chicken breasts, I used grilled chicken strips which made it easy for putting it with a salad. Overall very refreshing salad on a hot summer night. Thanks for posting.
Really delicious salad. The marinaded chicken is absolutely wonderful. I had not used Maifun before and really liked it in this dish. I did cut the red pepper flakes back to 1 teaspoon as I knew it would be too hot for me to use the full amount.
WOW ! This was sooo good, I couldn't get enough! Followed recipe exactly except I used cabbage and romaine lettuce and topped it with some LaChoy chow mein noodles. I had leftovers and made a wrap with it and that too was fabulous! I will definately be making this alot.
