This recipe has potential, but I have to agree with another reviewer - the peanut sauce was more like thinned peanut butter, and less like a peanut sauce. It was also too sweet for our palates. I suggest less peanut butter, more chicken stock or coconut milk...and maybe omit the brown sugar, or just add it according to your own personal taste. Jif peanut butter is sweet, so additional sugar is not really necessary.
If you do not use Jif peanut butter (and use a natural or generic peanut butter) you may find the sauce will separate. Jif is known for holding up well in recipes.
The chicken itself had good flavor, it wasn't phenomenal, but it was tasty. I let it marinade overnight and made sure it was cooked just until the pinkness was gone. We had the chicken and sauce over rice, but it would probably be even better with noodles and a good handful of chopped scallions and peanuts. Also, the sauce recipe makes A LOT of sauce, more than enough for our family of 7 with quite a bit left over.
All in all, not a bad recipe, but I think it needs to be tweaked.
