Reviews for Thai Chicken Fettuccine
"Love this stuff. Wonderful sauce."
"We loved this recipe! I made it exactly as written except I added some broccoli florets and snow peas. It made for a very filling dinner with egg rolls on the side."
"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!"
