    This was a great-tasting and quick meal. I added some white onion sauteed in a tiny bit of sesame oil and a splash of fish sauce, shredded carrots, and julienned cucumber (added separately in the tracker) to bulk up the servings to a generous meal size for 4, and it was great. - 4/13/11

  • This is fantastic. I did it with veg instead of chicken as we had gorged on chicken for lunch. I made 4 portions of the hardest part of the sauce: mixed up the soy sauce, garlic, ginger and chili, with a note to add the broth, PB and lemon juice when I make it up. Trouble was, we ate too much! - 9/14/13
