Don't get on my case if this isn't authentically Indonesian, okay? When I found the recipe, it was called Indonesian Chicken, and, not being Indonesian or knowing anyone from Indonesia, I can neither confirm nor deny that this is, indeed, Indonesian Chicken. It is, however, definitely a recipe for chicken, and a mighty tasty one at that. The peanut sauce is also useful to put on things that you don't want to serve naked, such as noodles, rice, or steamed veggies.

  8. Remove from heat and add peanut butter.
  9. Gradually stir in water, then add remaining ingredients.

Very good. I had been searching for an easy chicken with peanut butter recipe, and this fit the bill, and all ingredients I had on hand. I stir fried the chicken then added the sauce, served over rice with broccoli. Very very filling. I will definiitely be making again, but probably not for a while, since it's so rich, I'd really have to be in the mood for it.

I loved this! Unfortunately, my boyfriend, who is not really a fan on ginger, hated it. Guess I have to make it when I'm home alone!

This turned out delicious. Didn't have any onions so left them out and added more pepper to keep things spicy :D Also used honey instead of sugar. The dish is easy to make, interesting and flavourful, made it twice and will be making again. Thanks for sharing!
