    My husband wiped his plate clean!! This was amazing. I coated chicken breast with some asian five spice, substituted shitake mushrooms with crimini, and used a little cornstarch to thicken the mixture a little. I also used bib lettuce which makes a fantastic cup to capture all the juices! - 8/21/08
