This recipe was created when we felt like having spicy, Oriental tasting food. It's delicious, and uses bold ingredients such as peanut butter, fresh ginger and sesame oil. Try serving over rice.

This recipe was fabulous! I also reduced the soy sauce to 1/3 cup and I cut the peanut butter down to 2 TBSP. I used 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into small strips. I made it an entire meal by adding broccoli sliced carrots and strips of green bell pepper along with the onions already listed in the recipe. Will definitely make this again!

Absolutely dreadful. I am a huge Thai food fan & I have never tasted anything like this before. Even cutting back to 1/2 cup of soy this was far too salty. The sauce was an unappetizing mess. What a waste of chicken.

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. Took advice from other reviews and used just over 1/3 cup of soy sauce and topped it off with enough water to make 1 cup of liquid. I used 2 large boneless chicken breasts added 1 cup of fresh broccoli. Used Sriracha chili sauce instead of hot pepper sauce. Loved the heat but would not suggest this dish for small kids. Will definitely make this dish again!

Now I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings here but this dish is the worst thing I have ever tasted. I must have done something wrong. I used half of the soy sauce yet eating it felt like swallowing sea water. I'm sorry to say: This is not Thai!

Man this chicken was the utter pinnacle of exquisite! I loved each and every bite of its peanut-buttery goodness! My friends and I got ripped fixed this delightful concoction and boy was it awesome! We ate it all in like 10 minutes...then we ordered a pizza. The pizza was good too.

Tasty but not worth the pot scrubbing! would be good paired up with coconut rice. I might make this again but it was a bit laborious for the 4 pieces of chicken. I substituted 1/3C of Tamari (like soy sauce only less salt and I think no MSG--which gives me a HUGE headache!)and added enough water to make the liquid equal 1/2 cup--it was not salty as others have complained the taste was just right--but what a load of dishes to clean up!

After reading other reviews I only used 1/3 C of soy. I also used just 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter which was plenty. This dish had a nice satay style sauce and was thoroughly enjoyed. Others who ate it rated it 4.5 stars.

I made this with the full amount of soy sauce requested. Mistake. Definitely cut back on it possibly to a 1/4 or 1/2 cup and use water or low sodium broth to make the full cup requested. I loved the peanut butter flavor and used crunchy peanut butter to add some crunch! (Best part of the experience!) Recipe has potential--definitely need to alter to your taste.:)

This was the most disgusting thai chicken I have ever had. It tastes nothing like thai. I served this at a dinner party and noone ate it. It was way too salty and ended up throwing the dinner out and ordering pizza for everyone. How embarassing and what a waste of time.......
