Recipe by Buster's friend
Found this recipe in The Witchita Eagle of all places. The name comes from its originating restaurant - Saigon, a very popular place in Witchita... Kansas!! It sounds delish & good for hot weather. Plan to cook outside using a wok on a hot grill so as not to heat up the house. Marinate chicken a few hours. use any piece of chicken you have _ I freeze fryers I cut up in parts so it'll depend on what is in the freezer when I get to making this one.
