"This recipe was born from the desire to develop a time-friendly, easy-on-the-budget entree loaded with savory Asian flavor. It’s a family favorite and also a favorite at the girls’ camp where I am the head cook. I usually serve it with rice prepared with coconut milk." Debbie Fleenor — Monterey, Tennessee

"Did not like the peanut sauce at all. Also too much curry."

"I used 1 teaspoon ginger in the marinade and skipped it in the sauce. Also did not bother with chicken broth and substituted water, but added a couple teaspoons of brown sugar to the sauce. The chicken turned out moist and tasty and leftovers were good too. Thanks!"

"I used lemon juice because that's what I had. Yum! The chicken was tender & fall in your mouth delicious. The taste is very Thai like so I served it with white steamed rice & fresh steamed veggies. Yes I will make this again! Thank you."
