I followed aemilehi's recommendation and made this for dinner tonight. I didn't skewer the chicken, just grilled chicken "tenders" in a bbq basket (the skewers are a lot of bother when you have children). I was afraid of not having enough so I doubled the sauce. Trust me--there IS plenty of sauce, but the extra sauce gives us an excuse for having this dish again soon. Some of us like HOT food, so I added red chili flakes to half of the sauce and they loved it. Served with Jasmine rice and a cucumber/tomato salad. Excellent!

Can you say OMG?? This was the most amazing meal I have ever had! Marinated the chicken overnight for convenience. Used fresh chopped onion in the sauce rather than dried. Served it over flat stick rice noodles that were tossed with just a bit of the peanut sauce, fresh chopped thai basil and sauteed onions and green peppers. The straight sauce was on the side for dipping the chicken. We tried this last night and my best friend came over for dinner -- we were all so happy we had tears in our eyes as each bite was the most amazing thing we had ever eaten!! We were worried that the town we are moving to has no Thai restaurants -- who needs one now?!?!?! Fantastic. Can't say enough great things about this recipe, from the way the house smelled, to the explosion of flavor in each bite! Make this recipe!

The chicken came out awesome! The peanut sauce was good but just a little too sweet. I served it on the side. Also, I used the rest of the can of coconut milk diluted with water to cook rice in and then mixed in some fresh cilantro. Very Yummy. The family loved it. We will have this again!!

This is a huge hit at our house! I make this at least once a month now. I have four kids, so skewers don't happen ;) Instead I cube up chicken (sometimes breast, sometimes thighs) and marinate (minus the oil). I then stir fry the cubed chicken. We LOVE the sauce, so I always make lots. I serve with white or brown rice. I steam broccoli, carrots, fresh green beans, whatever looks awesome that day. Then we dip our veggies in the sauce as well! With this sauce, my kids will eat pretty much any veggie I put in front of them.

I made this for hubby and I for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly. I was not too crazy about the peanut sauce. Neither was he. Something seemed quite off. Maybe it is because we are use to eating mine. It was good, just different. It didn't really taste authentic. Thank you for posting. (Made for "Name That Ingredient" tag)

Made this tonight for dinner with just a few variations! I didn't put any oil in the marinade as I wasn't grilling/skewering my chicken. Let it marinate for about an hour then stir fried the chicken with some veggies. Made brown rice to serve with that and then made the peanut sauce. Only thing I did differently for the peanut sauce was no onion flakes (didnt have any) and I add about another tablespoon more of sweet chili sauce! We mixed the stir fry, rice and peanut sauce together on our plates and my husband and I BOTH loved it (Gotta admit, we were more crazy about the peanut sauce than anything else on our plates..but we are huge lovers of anything with peanut butter!) Thanks for posting this recipe!

we really enjoyed this as a meal over rice. i added cabbage onion green pepper and garlic and it really was fantastic. i am aoing to use this marinade for other recipes too. go easy on the peanut sauce though it can make it a little bland. thanks again for a great recipe!!

Wonderful! I used b/s chicken breasts and freshly diced onions, instead. The next time I prepare this recipe I'll use much less peanut butter, maybe only 1/4 cup and add a few drops of hot sauce. This one is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
