The peanut sauce was the definite highlight of this recipe - it was sooooooo yummy! The chicken was good by itself too, but I'm not convinced the seasoning in the coating paired with the sauce. I didn't have any rosemary so left it out. Next time I will also leave out the thyme - I like thyme but the flavor of it was incongruous with the peanut sauce. (I also used garlic powder instead of garlic salt.) The technique for the chicken was great (love the way the coating snap crackle popped LOL), but I only baked for 15 minutes which was plenty of time to cook the chicken and get the coating crispy - 30 minutes would have been way too long. I used 2lbs. of chicken tenders and the amounts of everything else were perfect for that quantity. Thanks for the recipe and good luck in the contest! ~August 22, 2008 UPDATE: I had to come back to say that I have made just the peanut dipping sauce many times but instead of a dipping sauce, I use it as a sauce for buckwheat noodles (with about half the water). Love it! My favorite peanut sauce I've had to date. Thanks again!
