I made this for lunch today. Instead of peanut oil, I used canola. Instead of fish sauce, I used lite soy sauce. Instead of crunchy peanut butter, I used creamy. Despite all of these substitutions, the end product was great. I served cooked some rice noodles, and dumped them in the sauce before serving. We loved it! The spicy flavor is addictive!
My husband made this for dinner tonight and it was a wonderful dish. It is something I would expect to get in a restaurant. He made a few substitutions to accommodate what we had on hand. He used oyster sauce and no fish sauce, and left out the sugar. He also used sweet Thai chili sauce. We found that it did not need the lemon. Lots of flavour in this dish and I am told it was easy to make. He mixed it with udon noodles to serve. If you like red curry dishes this is a great one to try. Thanks for the recipe.
This was "okay" for me but I added ground ginger,garlic powder, lime juice and it was PERFECT!!! served over noodles!
Add my wows to the chorus. There were six of us eating and we all gave this 2 thumbs up, for a total of 12. I had more than a pound of chicken, so I increased the rest of the ingredients by a smidge. I used regular (not lite) coconut milk, because it was what I grabbed, but I didn't use the entire cup. There was plenty of sauce anyway. No one wanted the lemon, either. Served t his with rice and it was excellent.
My husband is a peanut chicken fanatic - he's tried many peanut sauces/dishes and says this is on par with what he has had in restaurants. As an aside, I omitted the fish sauce because I was out, and the dish still came out beautifully. This was an easy dish, not to mention a really fun change of pace. I will be making this one again.
This had a nice balance of creamy peanut flavor and spice. I used 'Fat free coconut milk' #187372 in place of light coconut milk and canola oil instead of peanut oil. Dusted chicken with a little flour before browning as well. Served it on top of rice noodles as Chef PotPie also recommended.
wonderful! So easy and I had everything in the pantry! I did use some lime juice at the end. I added roasted cauliflower for mine, and some roasted peppers for DH... served over basmati rice. thanks for a great recipe!
I made this exactly as described, and it was delicious! Perfect amount of enjoyable spicey-ness! I served over Chow Mein noodles and divided into 8 servings- yummy!
