We made Thai Thighs for dinner tonight... yum! I used thigh meat, instead of peanut butter I used soy butter (I have a slight peanut allergy, and soy butter tastes pretty much the same), and instead of hot sauce used Thai chili sauce. The mixture was a bit too thick to spread on the thighs evenly so I added about 3 Tbsp of sherry. The resulting sauce that cooked up with the thighs smelled heavenly and tasted wonderful! My husband, who doesn't like overly-peanutty flavors, liked it quite a lot - he thinks that perhaps the soy butter might have made a difference. In any case, this is a keeper. :)

We found this to be an excellent recipe, a great blend of different tastes. It was extremely easy to prepare, and the combination of flavors was evident in every bite. I served it with fried rice and egg rolls. Great meal. Thanks Bergy.

Bergy this sauce was fantastic what a great taste! The chicken came out moist, some of the sauce on top burnt but it was still good. The next time I make this I'll cover with foil after 45 mins. if the legs are this large again. (I had 4 legs & 4 thighs and they weighed 5 pounds)
