    I ground cashews for breading tenders. Replaced apricots with mango chutney. Added pieces of mandrine oranges at the last minute. Everything else was the same as the original recipe.

    I can't believe I have not rated this before now! This is super easy and very tasty! The directions are spot on too! Thank you for sharing this quick and yummy recipe! Update! I have now done this adding in veggies too instead of or with the green pepper. Think broccoli, sugar snap peas, celery, carrots the options are only limited by your own mind. The veggies come out crisp tender.

    What a tasty dish. As Curt says, "TERRIFIC!" This is a keeper. It will be made a lot in the summertime. Never thought a microwave could turn out such a tast dish. Thanks for posting.

    I was checking to see if this was posted. It is really yummy and very easy to prepare. I like to make it in the summer because it is microwaved and doesn't heat up the kitchen. Great post Juenessa!

    I does not get ANY easier then this my friends! This was so delicious and super easy. I cannot believe the chicken was cooked in the microwave! The times were perfect for ours and our microwave is 950 Watts. I use Madeira wine instead of Sherry and low sodium soy sauce. I also had some fresh ginger and used that instead of the dried. But really none of those substitutions deviated from the recipe. Thanks Juenessa! Beverage Tag Rocks!

    Basically I just eliminated the apricots and replaced them with mango chutney.
