Putting all the ingredients together made me feel a little leary of this recipe, however, once mixed together and simmering, I could tell it was going to be good and it was. Like the previous reviewer said, it doesn't lack flavor! I used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and it tasted fine. I would use less ginger and add some cayenne pepper. I think adding sautéed onions before cooking the chicken would be yummy. Next time I would add some veggies while simmering, like bell peppers, carrots, etc. It's a good recipe and kind of reminded me of a thai curry without the added fat of coconut milk. I would definitely make it again.
Tasty sauce.. for me needed a little heat. I think the chicken was a little dried out so I'll cook it less time next time. Leftovers were moister as it had time to absorb some sauce
I approached this recipe with some trepidation but was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I added extra ginger and black pepper and substituted cumin for curry powder because I really do like spicy foods. Yet I wasn't impressed with the sauce until I added it to the chicken and then it all came together. Next time I will substitute sesame paste for the peanut butter. Not at all bland, that's for sure!
This is a really good & quick dish to make. I did change it a little, instead of using curry I substituted with 1/4-1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. I will definitely make this again
So tasty and easy to make...added a little cayenne pepper for a little heat, and it was very tasty. will definitely be making again.
