    We just made this exactly as directed… it’s freaking AMAZING. REALLY good stuff. Now I need to figure out what kinds of sides to serve with it.

    I used chicken I had cut up and frozen. It worked great! Next time I may double the sauce recipe and figure out how to add steamed veggies to serve over rice.

    Just made this for the first time. It was delicious and so easy to make. Next time I’ll reduce the oil just a bit. Served it with gluten free pasta and green beans.
