I doubled the sauce and next time I will triple it. I used cashews instead of peanuts, and I used an 8 oz can of water chestnuts and an 8 oz can of bamboo shoots. I doubled the chili paste along with the rest of the sauce ingredients but I think next time I'll still only double the chili paste rather than tripling it - it is very spicy!
It's good with broccoli and carrots, too - I added them to the sauce and cooked it all together before adding the cooked chicken. The veggies came out not crunchy, not mushy - perfect!
The recipe didn't say whether to use salted or unsalted nuts; I was lucky enough to find "lightly salted" nuts and I used these with "light" (low sodium) soy sauce. Mmmm! This is one of my very favorite recipes now - definitely a good one for company.
