I try to buy fresh chicken when it's on sale. I cook a big batch in the slow cooker, then shred it and package it in amounts suitable for recipes like this. When I want it, it just needs to be pulled out of the freezer and defrosted! —Jeni Pittard, Canon, Georgia

"Other than the texture, this dish had good flavor. We did sub rice pasta for the wheat (due to gluten allergy) but otherwise, it was the same ingredients. I liked the peanut butter sauce and but I think next time I'll add a touch more soy sauce to make the sauce a little creamier and a more pleasant texture."

"It was nice how quick this was, but we thought it was disappointing compared to other homemade Thai dishes. The texture was also odd."

"I enjoyed this dish. It comes together quickly and actually looks very pretty with the suggested garnish. The spiciness level of the salsa definitely is important in the overall taste of this dish. I added some sauteed onion and garlic to the mixture."

"This was excellent. Just spicy enough. Not overwhelming with the peanut butter flavor. I doubled the recipe so I could have lunch the next day. Not a good plan. The noodles soaked up all the sauce & it was super dry. Didn't reheat well."

"I doubled everything except the honey, peanut butter, and chicken. It was really good. I used leftover turkey breast in place of the chicken. I will be making again. I also used crunchy peanut butter and left off the cilantro."

"I just tried this. Like other reviewers I doubled everything except the peanut butter and honey. I loved it and will definitely make again. My husband would like it more spicey so I will use a hotter salsa next time."

"I have made this dish over and over, it is by far my favorite recipe. Quick and easy and SO yummy. I do what another review suggested and doubled the quantities except for the peanut butter and honey, also i use crunchy peanut butter since i never have chopped peanuts on hand. Enjoy!"

"Just making this again for supper tonight. Been looking forward to the next time I could make it! It's SO GOOD. Sorry for the previous reviewer that didnt like it - but everyone's tastes are different, that's what makes different recipes interesting! I always cook the sauce on the stovetop, just because I prefer to do it that way. Probably eliminates the smelly microwave situation too."

"this was just awful. the sauce was disgusting. the peanut butter and salsa didn't combine at all, not to mention cooking salsa in the microwaves makes your house smell like burnt rotten tomatoes for days to come. do not make this recipe - a waste of time, money, and food!"

"This was my first time making any Thai food. My husband LOVES it in restaurants so I had a lot to live up to! He raved the whole time he was eating about how much he loved it! I made extra pasta and tripled the sauce recipe and accidentally used too much salsa but would do it like that again. I'm not a huge fan of cilantro either but that gave it a lot more flavor and I enjoyed it in this dish very much!! This recipe is way easy too so it will be made in this home many more times!!"
