This was very good, but next time I wil add more wasabi...the chicken was delicious but couldn't taste the wasabi at all! The sauce definately makes this recipe though...next time I may make a double batch...thanks for a keeper! :)

B Dazzld this was fabulous...the chicken was so tender! I added a pinch on wasabi to each side of the chicken breast after it was dipped in egg because we like wasabi so that gave it a little more kick and then breaded it. I also marinated it for 8 hours in soy sauce and sprinkled them with Emeril's Asian Seasoning. Otherwise I followed it exact. I'm sure it would have been wonderful without my additions but I like to take some artistic license when preparing food.
