Reviews for Chicken with Peanut Sauce
"I have never tasted a peanut sauce chicken before, so I was intrigued. It took me less than 10 min to look up the recipe and have it on the table. I have nothing to compare to, but when my husband tried it his first word was "Good!" I did omit the pepper flakes as I do not tolerate much "heat". And, I think when I spashed in the vinegar, I may have gotten a bit extra. I left the chicken breast whole (I missed the part in the recipe that said to cut into strips. I did add 1 tsp honey to tweak to my taste (and maybe to offset the extra vinegar). I will be making this again, soon- I enjoyed it very much."
"Yummy alternative to boring old chicken! Leave out the hot pepper for kids or those who don't like spice."
