    Question instead of a reply. No sure about step 2. It’s a little confusing. Step 2 says to pour the sauce into a sauce pan with the chicken, then to “grill it” 3-5 mins or till brown. After the chicken is covered with the sauce are we suppose to take the chicken back out of the pan and put it on the grill, or do you mean to cook it in the sauce on the stove? Also, when we add the sauce to the salad,do we let it cool first or add it while it’s still hot/warm? Would appreciate a reply. Thank you.

      Sorry for the confusion, it is meant to be “cooked” and not “grilled” on the saucepan, with the sauce. The sauce is meant to be poured on immediately after cooking but you may also let it cool for a bit before you drizzle it on depending on your preference.
