Top Review by Miss Annie

Kim, these little tenders were very good, very tasty. The nut mixture was a very good combination, giving a satisfying crunch. The sauce was simple, but bursting with flavor. I did add some finely chopped green onion to the sauce for an added bit of color and taste. We liked the onion, but you could use chives instead. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipe.
