This is one tasty dish...there's lots of ingredients...but really doesn't take that long to prepare...it's broken down in segments...while the chicken is swimming in the marinade...make the sauce (vinegar mixture) and let it sit aside till needed...once that's done chop up the veggies...and start steaming the rice...now start cooking the chicken...don't let the amount of ingredients prevent you from trying this yummy dish...I omitted the peanuts...hubby doesn't care for them in his food...but I did add a bit of heat using red pepper flakes...made for "Only the Lonely" tag game...Reply
