All thumbs up for this lovely chicken recipe. The chicken pieces came out juicy and tender and the sauce is a perfect match, wonderful over rice. I wish I had not run out of scallions, because it would have escalated even further, but it was still Yum. Next time though, I will cut down the black pepper in half. It’s a keeper. Thank you for sharing, DieniaB!
