"This is one of my favorite recipes from Quick and Simple. I've made it a bunch of times. Going to make it for dinner tomorrow in fact! It's so different from what I usually make. I made it for a friend once so she could try it too. I'm a sucker for peanut butter and wasn't sure how it would be in a dish like this, but it's SO good! I'm actually going to let it marinade for 24+ hrs. so making dinner after work won't take as long."

"My husband and I loved this! The marinade is versatile, so I like to double it up to use on steak and chicken. If making the dip, I'll probably go a little easy on the peanut butter next time."
