I have no idea what some of these people are talking about. My picky, anti-everything 15-year-old requests this dish every other night. She hates spicy, sweet, chicken, air, talking to others, participating and the fact that life does not do everything she thinks it should. But she likes this chicken. A lot. Thank God.
