- FEEL FREE TO LEAVE OUT THE pepper OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU DON'T CARE FOR, AND SUBSTITUTE SOMETHING ELSE. IT'S ALL ABOUT YOUR TASTE. BUT, SWEET, SPICY, TANGY AND saltY ARE GOOD! shopping list
- I made this w/ about 1lb of chicken breasts, boneless. I used about 1/2 Cup of cashews, about 1/2 tsp of finely chopped hot pepper, 1 small can of mandarin oranges, about 1/2 C orange juice, about 1/4 C of craisins. For time and ease I used a "rice cup", nuked for 1 min, and added ground ginger and butter. I would have preferred the real thing, "No more Boring rice". shopping list
