This dish was inspired by a recipe I saw on Lea Ann's site for Sweet Chili Mustard Chicken Salad. It looked sooooo good and I just love sweet chili sauce. I love it even more that I have learned how to make it myself. Who needs store bought when making it is so incredibly easy and inexpensive? (I have Andrea The Kitchen Witch to thank for that recipe!)
Simple, delicious, and so very easy. This is another great meal for those busy week nights!
