      Fabulous taste! I really enjoyed the depth and intensity of the flavors mingling together. I made this easy recipe even easier by using prepared chicken strips from the grocery store. Makes it a cinch! I did heat the peanut butter in the microwave (15 seconds @ 50% power), to make the mixing of ingredients easier. I served this on top of Barbara's Chinese Noodle Salad and crunchy chow mein noodles, with the chicken strips on top and the sauce drizzled over all. Thanks so much for sharing, Vicarjane in Western MA!
