Chicken With Peanut Sauce (Swimming Rama) - OAMC

"This comes from a oamc book called "Fix, Freeze, Feast" and is really delicious! Its one of my favorite Thai type dishes and I usually serve it on top of fresh spinach leaves (for me) and on steamed rice (for DH & kiddos) . This is meant as a OAMC dish so it uses a large package of chicken such as you would purchase at a warehouse store. This makes 3 entrees and each entree serves 4-6 people."

  1. Froze and reheated beautifully. Just the thing after coming back from camping. Served with rice that had also been frozen. 2 fussy children liked it too. Will definitely make again. (Made with chunky peanut butter as that's what was on hand). Would be nice with some chopped cilantro added just before serving.
  2. Yum! Made this to freeze, but we liked it so much, it didn't make it to the freezer. I added sliced onion to the sauce as it simmered and would have added some peas too, but we were out. I'm not sure how the veggies would freeze, but as a make-it-and-eat-it meal, I think they'd be a nice addition. I give an enthusiastic 5 stars as I finish the last bowl of leftovers. =)
  3. This was my first time making peanut sauce, and I think it turned out great! We even had a guest that night for dinner and he said he loved it, that Chicken with Peanut Sauce is his favorite food, and that I did a great job! So I think it was a hit--my kids loved it too which was surprising!
  4. Hubby gave this a 10 (our highest in the household). I used chunky peanut butter, and it worked out fine. I also used lite coconut milk and that also worked out well. This will go into our rotation, especially since the ingredients are always in our pantry.
  5. I made this in my last OAMC cooking session. I thought it might taste too much like chowder; that's what it smelled like after I added the fish sauce. Also, when I took it out of the freezer, it had a curdled appearance. Not to worry! It reheated beautifully and tasted great with jasmine rice. Thank you for this recipe!
