"This is a delicious modification of a classic Thai dish! You've probably had the chicken version if you're a meat eater, and I'm sure you could substitute meat for the seitan, however, I urge you to give the seitan a try. Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. Seitan comes the closest to real meat that a vegetarian or vegan can have. Seitan really picks up the flavor of whatever marinade it's put into. If you've ever had 'mock duck' at a Thai restaurant, then you've had seitan before. It can be found at natural food or Asian food stores." — ENDLESSSKY

I did use chicken instead of seitan, but the sauce is great!
Good recipe. Additionally; however, seitan may easily be made using vital wheat gluten. Some commercially prepared brands include unnecessary fillers and flavors in their products. Making it yourself is very easy. It's also much less expensive, and no doubt healthier.
I made this recipe and thought it was tasty. Thanks!
Made pretty much as stated only used real chicken. I liked it but my husband and kids didn't. I couldn't get a good answer out of them as to what they didn't like about it, they just didn't.
DELICIOUS! I made w/fresh organic kale from the garden instead of spinach.
Super Tasty! The sauce is awesome!
I made this with chicken and it was amazing. The sauce is so good, I would make this again for sure.
Yum. Made it with sauteed crisp tofu and green beans. Everyone loved it, even the picky 7-year-old.
