Thai Chicken With Spicy Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a relatively quick recipe that has a great rich flavor. The peanut sauce is also a good dipping sauce for grilled chicken.

Very good recipe. I used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and left out the sesame oil, but otherwise I followed the recipe closely. Next time, I will add more stir fry veggies.
