Reviews for Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers
"I thought it was alright. I can't pinpoint what kept this recipe from being amazing... Maybe needs more salt and sugar? It would probably have been an amazing recipe if the chicken were marinated beforehand..."
"I usually just double or triple the sauce , add cooked chicken to it and pour it over rice. Definitely a keeper."
"I really love peanut chicken satay! That being said, I had to pay fry this, as our grill is currently out of commission. It was very good, but I've had amazing satay at a few thai places. Definitely going in the recipe book!"
"I had breast and thigh meat. Turned out wonderful! Love all the flavors!"
"Very good! Served it with macaroni salad and corn on the cob for my dad's birthday. Next time I make it I may leave out the pepper flakes though. They made it a bit spicy for my tastes :-)"
