So tasty! This was better than the PF Chang's version because I could control what was in it. Easy and flavorful. Worth looking for the fish sauce at the grocery store :)

Easy-yes. Flavorful-yes. Quick-yes. Low Carb-yes. Kids liked it-yes. 5 times Yes is a winner!! Everyone enjoyed this tonight. Did not have fish sauce, substituted it for 1/2 cube fish boullion. Not easy to keep the chicken from falling; have spoons at the table.

These were amazing! I substituted canola oil for peanut oil and everyone loved them! I will definitely be making these again.
