Hunan Chicken

"From Chinese Cookery a nice chicken dish that can be served either at room temperature or chilled. The cucumbers add a nice contrast to the spicy sauce. You can serve this over pasta or rice."

    Very tasty salad and a good to prepare ahead of time. I served this with rice. Made for ZWT 6

    We really thought this recipe was very good. My husband loves chicken in just about any form and this was no exception. I served it with a fresh fruit salad. I plan to make another batch and freeze it for when it's really hot outside. Thanks for this recipe that is now on a list of meals that I will make again and again.

    We really enjoyed this! My husband always orders hunan chicken when we eat at a Chinese restaurant so I wanted to try and recreate that for him here at home. I did not have any sesame paste so I just used peanut butter instead. I used brown rice to serve the dish with since that is what I had on hand. We thought it was delicious. Hubby said that if I had used the sesame paste it would have tasted exactly the way the restaurants make it. Thanks for the recipe!
