Don’t know the next time I’ll be cooking for anyone but in case the opportunity pops up, I’ll have to try this recipe from my mom: 1 lb. skinless chicken breast ½ cup smooth peanut butter 2 T. soy sauce 2 t. minced garlic 1/8 t. ground red pepper 1 t. fresh ginger (I used [...]
I made this recipe again and it’s just fantabulous!
