    Kevin Young's Note:

    This is a delicious recipe, closest type of cuisine I can classify it as is Thai. Regardless, it's a great recipe, of course you have to really like peanuts. It is also good with tofu instead of chicken, just cube the tofu, and add to the peanut sauce directly. Enjoy!

      This was wonderful!! I was concerned that the preparation was going to take a long time but it wasn't long at all. Also, the whole fish sauce thing had me a bit freaked out. I'm happy to say that it was well worth it. I will make this again, fish sauce and all! Thanks!

      This was a very good recipe. My husband and daughter thought they would like it even better with some curry powder in it, so I added about 1 tablespoon. I served this dish with Shortcut Sticky Rice (#105013), and Thai Cucumber Sauce (#29196). I had a very happily family. YUM!
