    Chef #463637's Note:

    I got this recipe from one of Meanie's. It was a great recipe, but not enough sauce. So I made a great tasting recipe that is not too spicy and just the right amount of sauce. Very easy to make.

      Excellent, so very good. Made it for PAC Spring 2007 and I'm glad I did! I used turkey instead of chicken and halfed the recipe. Easy to make on a working day, I made it in 20 minutes. Its a keeper! Thanks, for sharing with us!
