I made a triple batch for a big party. Even though we had tons of leftovers, these were gone half-way through the evening.

This was very tasty! The peanut sauce was especially delicious on the coconut jasmine rice that a I made to accompany the dish. I made several substitutions including using chicken thighs for the breast, green onions for the lemon grass, creamy instead of crunchy peanut butter and gluten free soy sauce in lieu of the fish sauce. It was all delicious and the chicken was very tender. The marinade made alot more than was needed though.
