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.
This chicken was excellent. I doubled the sauce and we enjoyed the additional sauce a lot and thought it really enhanced the flavor of the chicken (although it was very moist and tender already). The chicken was very flavorful but the wasabi was not overpowering...just added a nice kick of flavor. Very nice dish! Made for Spring 2010 PAC - you've been adopted!!!
