Completely satisfied with this recipe. I used sesame oil, 2 tbsp of soy sauce instead of 3, and stir-fry veggies instead of white rice. have always loved Pra Ram chicken but could never find the right recipe for the peanut sauce. This recipe NAILED it. This is definitely on my weekly meal rotation. U can't wait to prepare this for my parents.
One of my favorite dishes, now from scratch. Sauce goes a long way. I used sesame oil and natural creamy peanut butter. Love it.
I found the recipe as written was way too sweet and I only used 1/3 c sugar. I also added about 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and that really brought out the peanut taste. I will make this again with less sugar and sesame oil.
I have made recipes before from the south pacific before asking for peanut butter and actually have one of my own listed on recipezaar using pork and have never been dissappointed..My DH was impressed with this dish. I cooked the frozen stir fry veggies during last half cooking time with the chicken chunks and it worked out well for me..I liked alittle less sauce on mine, so I let everyone add the amounts they wanted as it can be over powering if you use too much..I like tasting the chicken and veggies..Very Good, but not as good reheated..Thank U for this recipe..Also looked very impressive on the serving platters...
My son and I thought this was YUMMY! I added my own touches, but to me, that's the sign of a great recipe...if it's such a good foundation that you can build on it and still have a fabulous outcome! :) This is that kind of recipe! I sauteed the chicken and veggies at the same time, using olive oil and a dash of sesame oil. I happened to have pre-cooked frozen chicken strips on hand, so I used them. I didn't have spinach or stir-fry veggies, so I used what I had: frozen peas/carrots, frozen broccoli florets, and cubed eggplant. I didn't use the water called for, b/c I figured the water from the frozen veggies would be enough, once it thawed, and I had no problems doing it that way. As I sauteed everything, I added curry powder, ginger powder, salt/pepper, granulated garlic, and sesame seeds (all to taste...I didn't measure anything). To the peanut sauce (prior to the coconut milk step), I added approx. 4 teaspoons curry powder (maybe more? mine was mild, which is why I used so much...flavorful, not spicy), approx. 1 teaspoon ginger powder, and a small handful of chopped green onion. I served the chicken/veggie saute over whole wheat linguini, ladled the peanut sauce on top, and garnished with chopped peanuts and green onions. ENJOY...we sure did!!!
