As others have said, the flavor combination was odd. I know Thai food use peanuts or peanut butter in some dishes but the addition of honey and OJ.... the OJ really stood out. I won't make this again :(

This is one of my favorite meals. Every time I've cooked it (usually for 20 people or more) I get rave reviews. Instead of the microwave I just put the the sauce in a saucepan on the stove and just heat it until it's warm as not to lose any of the spice of the salsa.

This recipe is absolutely wonderful. I used over a pound of shrimp instead of chicken, but followed the recipe otherwise. There was plenty of sauce, spice, flavor, etc. Family loved it! Yum!

Very tasty. I made it exactly as the recipe stated except that I threw in some sliced carrots and subbed brown sugar for the honey snce I had run out of it. Reminded me of my favorite restaurant. Good stuff

I make this often and really enjoy it; usually I serve it over couscous. I normally add onions, and sometimes whatever other vegetables I have on hand, sauteing them until they're tender. And because I like a stronger orange flavor, I use 2 tab of OJ concentrate.
