EXCELLENT!!!! I used B/S chicken breasts rather than thighs, but this was VERY TASTY!!! Will definitely make this one again! Thanks!

Really tasty! My changes: chicken breasts instead of thighs; whirled peanuts and day-old bread together in the food processor instead of using bread crumbs; dried cilantro instead of fresh. Served over rice with peppers, onion, mango and coconut stirred in. The crumb mixture can be made ahead in a double batch and frozen until needed. A keeper recipe.
