This recipe is tasty. next time, I'm going to use a little more peanut butter and a little less chili sauce (3 tablespoons of siracha was too much for me!). I'll probably double the sauce also.
thanks for the recipe!
Very tasty and easy. Not necessarily authentic, but it's a great tasting peanut chicken recipe with the luxury of letting is sit in the slow cooker all afternoon. I agree on making more sauce if you want some to pour over the rice as well.
We liked and would make it again. I would give it 4.5 stars.
Although I used the hot Asian Chili Sauce, rather than plain American Chili Sauce, we still found this recipe to be rather bland for our tastes. It looked pretty though!
Spicy and absolutely delicious!!
