“Recipe from Food Network. BE WARNED!!!!! This is a very spicy dish. You may want to adjust the seasonings accordingly. I repeat, this is a very spicy dish. That said, everyone at my house loved it. The chicken (I used thighs) came about unbelievably melt in your mouth tender. Serve on a bed of rice noodles. Yummy!”

  3. Add salt, pepper, sugar, ginger and chicken.
