      I would actually give this 3.5 stars if that were an option. I would increase the cilantro to 3/4 cup because you can't taste it at all as written. I would increase the lime juice to 1/3 cup and decrease the chicken to 2 1/2 cups. There is so much chicken in this as it is written that it totally overwhelms the dish. I would also suggest adding an extra tablespoon of lemongrass and a 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the sauce. It doesn't have a peanut flavor as written and I was expecting it to for some reason. My preference would be to have some peanut flavor in the sauce, not just a few peanuts sprinkled on top. As it is written, it is a LOT less flavorful than it looks.
