I just made this for a Chinese New Year celebration we are hosting. We "love" this recipe, but I could only give it 4 stars because it needed some changes to get it right. First off, do NOT use as much cornstarch as it calls for in the sauce. I had to add chicken broth to it because it was like paste rather than a nice thick sauce. Otherwise the ingredient ratio was perfect. I actually baked my chicken in the oven, just for ease and it's a little healthier. I just cut it into pieces, threw them on a cookie sheet and in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. Perfect! I sauteed some diced green pepper, chopped carrot, diced onion and celery in my wok and then added the sauce mixture and cooked until the sauce thickened. I added the veggies because anytime I order this at a restaurant some or all of those veggies are in the dish. I put 3/4 of the peanuts in the sauce. I put the baked chicken into a serving dish, poured the sauce and veggie mixture over top, gave it a good stir and used the remaining peanuts (I crushed them) sprinkled over the top to garnish, along with the scallions. Overall this was a great recipe and I will definitely make it again. Even my kids loved it.
