Wow, the marinade on this chicken is sooo good! This recipe has been in my cookbook for a couple of years and I've always skipped over it because it looked kind of average. So glad we finally tried it. Made as a salad rather than wraps, doubled the dressing, marinated the chicken all day, and used broccoli slaw rather than bean sprouts/peanuts as other reviewers suggested. Would be excellent with tuna, too.

I made this following the recipe exactly except I only used 3 chicken breasts and did not use the optional peanuts. I had eaten a late lunch, so my boyfriend ate alone, and he ate all of them! He didn't realize I hadn't had any and he said they were so good he couldn't stop himself. This is a skinny guy who almost never overeats so I'm thinking they were darn good.

I thought the marinade was the best part of this. I didn't get the mint at all. If you don't already have the majority of these ingredients in your kitchen, this recipe isn't worth buying them for.

I really liked this recipe and so did my husband and 7 year old! If you make Asian inspired dishes the ingredients should be on hand and not too expensive. I cut down on the amount of sesame oil in the sauce; it has a very strong flavor. Also used all the sauce as marinade and when it came time to make the wraps we used bottled sauces we already have on hand, Thai peanut, sweet & sour, etc. I made a buffet of toppings and let everyone choose for themselves- shredded carrot, water chestnut, cilantro, etc in addition to the recipe ingredients. I will make these again!

I love this recipe. I did change a few things. I cooked the chicken on a pancake griddle and then instead of slicing it, I put it in the food processor with the sauce so it would be more like pf changs. I put the beansprouts in a bowl with the meat and mixed it together. I also made a topping sauce with sariacha sauce, lime and soy sauce. We will definatly make this again.

Easy to make and delicious. The chicken marinade was fantastic. I shredded the chicken for the wraps and will add some more veggies that I had around next time(shredded carrots, radishes). Great for a weeknight meal.

This recipe is really good and really easy. I used ground turkey instead of chicken and instead of marinating the chicken; I used the sauce to cook the ground turkey. I did not use the mind, but added carrots and water chestnuts. I also used a bottled sauce, with the wraps, since turkey can be dry and bland. This recipe is very versatile
