Oh, my, thanks so much for sharing this! It is better than I even pictured it. I have to pick up chicken breasts anyway and have just about everything else, so I think I will make it for us tomorrow night!

Of course! My problem is most of my recipes are in my head, I don't have anything written down!

ADJUSTMENT - It's just a bit salty, I added another 1/4 cup of mandarin liquid and 2 TBS of Rice Vinegar. Tasted and did a Happy Dance!
