    ChrisMc's Note:

    I found this as "Chinese Peanut Chicken" - the cream makes this an inauthentic Chinese dish, but it tastes great. The sauce is very rich, but very simple to make - it's hard to go wrong with this. Time does not include marinating.

      I tried this recipe for our poker night, I think the butter and flour were suppose to be like a rhu(?) however the ratio for a rhu is 1:1 and the 1tbsp of butter is not enough liquid to soak up 1 cup of flour on its own. It was more of a paste than a sauce. I did like the flavor and will try it again with my own adjustments to the recipe.

      I cannot wait to try this! I will come back and leave a rating afterward. Our local Chinese restaurant makes the BEST peanut chicken -but it's fried and in a thick creamy sauce like this one, rather than stir fried and in a light sauce. I haven't been able to find a recipe close to it until now. Can't wait to see how it compares. This looks great.
