This was awesome. I admit that I always read the reviews and incorporate the suggestions. Some people find that annoying, but that's the best part about this site - the pooled knowledge of so many cooks! The base recipe is an excellent base recipe. I made this spicier by first cooking 2 sliced habaneros in oil, then I dumped in the onion and other dry spices. I used roasted red thai chili sauce instead of chili garlic paste. I also tossed in some fresh chopped basil and red pepper flakes. I cooked the chicken in this mix and waited until it was cooked through before adding the veggies. Per other reviewer recommendations, I omitted the ketchup but used peanut butter and doubled the wet ingredients (broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce, peanut butter). At the end I mixed in some cornstarch to thicken the sauce and added the lime juice. This recipe totally blew away my Korean boyfriend who likes spicy food and also got rave reviews from a co-worker with whom i shared the leftovers. Oh and instead of toasting the cashews and cooking them whole, I ground them up with a mortar and pestle - about half a cup worth. I cooked with half the cashew crumbles and reserved the rest to top the finished product.
