  1. I used twice and much chicken as the recipe called for and cashews instead of peanuts otherwise made as per recipe with the DH and I enjoyed and with left overs DH ended up with two more meals. Thank you Forevermama for the recommendation and Lavender Lynn for posting a delicious recipe (and oh it had a bit of kick behind it too which we enjoyed) made for Best Of 21 tag game at FF&F.
  2. This dish went over very successfully in my family. It is not one smidgen shy on flavor and all the ingredients involved make for a well-balanced dish. Because others had mentioned that the sauce came out thick, I used a little less than half of the cornstarch. However, I did double the sauce to make sure we had enough to spoon over our rice. The only thing I did differently was to use cashews instead of peanuts. So good! Thank you, Lavender Lynn, for sharing. Made it for FYC.

  3. We really enjoyed this lovely dish Lynn. It was very tasty. That said, I I also had a difficult time with the sauce, it was too thick, I had to water it down a lot. Next time I would use about half the amount of cornstarch. The chicken was very flavorful and tender. It was really good served over Mint-Cilantro Coconut Rice. Thanks for sharing your tasty recipe. Made for Seaside Brasserie.
  4. Yummy chicken recipe! It was full of flavor and almost caramelized. It was great served over some rice. I added a few broccoli florets to the mix. I ended up adding some water to my sauce because mine came out pretty thick for some reason. The chicken was sooooo good! Thank you!
  5. Delicious and so easy to make. Made just as directed and it made a wonderful dinner tonight. Served with rice on the side.
