"Excellent. In AZ I like something that doesn't have to be hot for dinner. This is an excellent combination of flavors. Don't over do it on the dressing. Save some for another batch of wraps later."

"This was amazing. I made this to try with the intention of adding this to our list of summer meals. Way better than PF Chang's. My son absolutely loved it, but he is not a picky eater and likes to try new things."

"Really refreshing on a hot evening. I replaced the chopped red pepper with 1 cup cooked and cooled edamame."

"Very very good! An amazing blend of flavors and textures. Have made it twice already - perfect for a light summer dinner. I substituted tahini for the sesame oil - turned out perfect."

"Very disappointing taste, my wife and I ate it but this recipe won't be made by us again. As for the kids they took one bite and were done."

"Wow! Delicious and delightful. I could see using this dressing on almost anything you want to have a Thai flavoring hot or cold. My family loved this recipe. I could also see this in a wrap too. This would be a great dish to take to a concert in the park or on picnic or to the beach. If you don't want the "boats" just chop the lettuce into bite size pieces either mix in or serve under the chicken. If you have not tried this dish and you would like a little something different for supper this is the dish. You'll be dubbed the Queen of the Kitchen."

"This was amazing exactly following the recipe. I used natural peanut butter and green leaf lettuce instead and it was perfect!"

"Made it for dinner last night, as it was too hot outside to turn on the stove. I didn't have sesame oil; I just used the normal amount of canola oil.

It was really good. One of my kids thought the cilantro was a little too overwhelming, so I might decrease that next time and I might increase the peanut butter just a tad. Had the leftovers for lunch today and it was just as good."
