      This sauce was very flavorful. I used a combination of boneless thighs and drumsticks, which I had on hand. I've had some Thai recipes which used peanut butter, and it gives the sauce a very rich quality. Really not difficult to prepare at all, and different from the routine chicken recipes. Thank you!

      most ghanaians i know use fresh grated ginger, fresh ground tomatoes, and dried hot pepper in this recipe. also, many used smoked fish or chicken to flavor the base. -- from a former peace corps volunteer, ghana
