I'm doing the slower-cooker version of this recipe which means I used more chicken cut it into bite size pieces sauteed in frying pan and then moved to crock pot. Assembled the rest of the recipe and simply poured it on top (added garlic chopped red pepper and used lemon instead of lime juice). The house smells like heaven and the chicken tastes amazing! I'll serve over Trader Joe's vegetable rice. So good!!! Read More

Oh my goodness thank you SO MUCH Shannon for sharing this wonderfully fragrant and tasty dish! I did not alter any of the ingredients and it was absolutely delicious as is. It is definitely definitely mild on the "heat" aspect but adding cayenne or red pepper flakes could easily fix that. I only made two alterations when it came to preparing this recipe: I marinated it for six hours and I did not grill the skewers. I poured the chicken bites and all the marinated into a large glass dish covered it with tinfoil and baked it at 325 degrees for about an hour. The result was incredibly tender and juicy. An absolutely delicious and easy to make dish!! Read More

My dear sweet Shannon; we all loved this dish of yours! Rainy chilly and foggy today so I just skewered the chix and put them in the oven with the marinade. I used lite coconut milk made thin spaghetti added shredded cooked carrots raw green onion some of the wonderful dipping sauce put it all onto a pretty plate and topped it with the skewers. A bit of red pepper flakes gave the sauce just a tad of heat. Excellent and thank you hon!! Read More

I would give this 10 stars if I could! I developed a peanut allergy as an adult but grew up with peanut butter as my favorite food. I finally found an almond butter that tastes exactly like peanut butter and couldn't wait to use in this recipe. It was unbelieveable! I could make this recipe once or twice a week and never tire of it. I served this over brown rice. Amazing. Read More

Beats Emeril's recipe! I love this peanut sauce. Today I didn't have the time to marinate the chicken - just did a quick soy sauce and garlic soak before stir frying it. But the sauce is the real star here anyway. It's a perfect blend of flavors. I followed another reviewers suggestion and added some ginger and chili sauce - simply delicious! Since I only cook for 2 there's plenty of sauce left over which I'll probably toss with angle hair pasta tomorrow night. Thanks for sharing this winner - it's my new favorite Thai Peanut Sauce recipe! Read More

I was wondering why I didn't already have curry powder in my spice rack when I decided to make this recipe then I realized...I don't like curry! That being said I didn't mind it in the marinade but I tasted the sauce as it was cooking and realized it was not going to do it for me so I added 1 1/2 tsp chile sauce a dash of red pepper flakes and about a teaspoon of minced ginger. Finished it off with lime and it was excellent! Next time I will omit the curry powder from the sauce but still use it in the marinade just to give it a hint of curry flavor. Still I think it was an excellent recipe. Read More

Fantastic I did add some red pepper to the peanut sauce and some ginger to the marinade. I used the indoor grill I do think they lost something in appearance but the taste was superb. Read More

The marinade and chicken part was delicious and resulted in a very moist and tender chicken. I will definiitely use that again. But... My family did not like the peanut sauce at all. It just tasted like peanut butter flavored coconut milk... not at all like satay's that we have enjoyed a lot. After tweaking the dipping sauce (a lot) with more soy cayenne heavy cream ginger black pepper garlic and I can't remember what else I loved it. I served over Jasmine rice and a stir fry of snow peas red onion yellow squash brocolli and mushrooms. Even though we didn't like the peanut sauce as written I feel we found a recipe treasure because it was so easy and delicious. I will make over and over again with our changes. Read More

Super easy and super yummy. Try basting the skewered chicken with some of the peanut sauce while it is grilling and serve the remainder of the sauce at tableside. Read More
