Thai Chicken Dip

Recipe by  

"Served hot or warm, this exotic dip is a huge party pleaser. Ground chicken is simmered in a peanutty coconut sauce. You'll feel guilty for all the praise, because it is so easy to make. Serve with papadums or prawn crackers."

I used this recipe (minus the peppers) for the sauce on a thai chicken pizza.

1st of all this was not hot. I ended up putting 1/2 heaping teaspoon of red pepper flakes in after it was done because it wasn't spicy. Even with that addition it wasn't that hot. Some people didn't like the sweetness and one person I heard say, "Peanut butter? " Maybe she was allergic to peanut butter, I don't know, but she didn't eat any of it. Won't make this one again I can assure you.

Despite my initial reservations while cooking this dip, it was very well received at the party I brought it to. One friend liked it so much she said she could eat it with a spoon. Although it is not all that visually appealing, it makes up for it in flavour and uniqueness. I used red thai curry paste instead of red chilis and I used hoisin sauce instead of fish sauce (personal preference). Nice when you want something different.

This was delicious. A lot of people requested the recipe. If you are looking for something different from the normal old boring dips, this is it. I did add abit more chili because we like it hot.

This recipe is awesome! I added green curry paste to give it extra heat and used it in lettuce wraps.

If your guests like Thai food, they'll love this dip - it's different, tasty and fairly easy. I added green curry paste, more thai chilis and a little more chunky PB. We didn't like it with the shrimp crackers, but loved it with bread and black pepper flavored water biscuit crackers.

I added basil and while cooking the chicken a little bit of green thai curry paste. It was fabulous.

I have been making this for years and I am always asked for the recipe. It is very original and people are amazed at how good it tastes. Use red pepper flakes or regular mint if you don't have what is called for. I serve it with cut up pita bread or pita chips.
