Reviews for Indonesian Peanut Chicken
"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!"
"We liked and would make it again. I would give it 4.5 stars."
"Spicy and absolutely delicious!!"
"I made this for the first time today. It was very good, we both liked it very much. The one thing I would suggest is doubling the sauce if you're going to serve it over rice. The chicken really soaks up the sauce once you shred it."
"My husband and I love this. My kids, not so much."
"I've made this recipe twice already and I love it! The first time I forgot to add the Fresh Red Bell Peppers before serving it. Even though it was good, I enjoyed it better with them the second time I made the recipe."
