This recipe I found online at thai info. It turned out wonderfully. The peanut sauce is to die for! It calls for crunchy peanut butter but I didn't have that on hand so I used some chopped peanuts with the creamy peanut butter and that worked. It says to marinate the chicken for 2 hours but I marinated overnight. I think it made a huge difference. Enjoy
