    great recipe for breaded chicken (very tender). Nothing exciting by itself but awesome topped w/ black bean mango salsa. I flattened my chicken breasts a bit and I didn't have rice wine so I used Riesling instead

    Excellent chicken breast. Loved the macadamia nuts. I made half a recipe but DH ate the extra chicken with sauce. Served with Recipe #60331 and Recipe #170604. Great meal!

    Excellent! I made this dish tonight with my two sisters. All of us agreed that is was very good! The marinade smelled fantastic! The chicken turned out very tender. I know I will be making this again. YUMMM!

    My husband said this was one of the best things I have attempted to make to date! lol The only thing I did differently was I baked the chicken breasts instead of sautéing them! I cooked them or about 45 minutes at 400 degrees. They were amazing! They reminded me of the Macadamia Nut Chicken at the Kona Grill Restaurant! We will serve them at our next "asian/pacific rim" themed dinner party! :-)
