    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!

    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

    Don't worry about the ingredients list - it seems like a strange combination but is totally tasty. I thought this recipe was super yummy. It's very easy to make, especially with the sauce being made in the microwave. My husband loved it too. Will definitely make again!
