    This was great! Husband and son loved it. Only thing different was I added a lot more lime juice to the sauce. We had a lot of leftovers and enjoyed it the second time, too!

    Overall good. The chicken had good flavor and the peanut sauce was tasty. Easy to make. My whole family liked it.

    We lived in Indonisa for 2 years. This was a native dish which we had very often. I have not been able to fine a peanut sauce that we liked by this one was much like she made. I would like to perhaps use chunky peanut butter instead of smooth. We liked the chicken, but I cut back on the curry sauce.

    "1/48 (oz) salt and ground pepper to taste"?

    Dana, I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the 1/48(oz) is for recipe analyzing purposes. I used to use a food costing/nutritional program as a Chef that required all fields to have an input no matter how silly it seemed to the actual user. So it's salt and pepper to taste but figured into the nutritional analysis. Again, not sure if that is why it's there but I'm assuming.

    I had no soy sauce, lime or brown sugar, but I made it anyway, using just a tea spoon of white sugar in the peanut sauce, and you know what, it was delicious. I sprinkled freshly chopped coriander over the chicken for decoration and taste.

    Big hit! I loved everything about this dish. I served it with the coconut rice (found on this website) and edamame.

    Per Anna's suggestion, here is the link to the Coconut Rice recipe: (http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/344617-coconut-rice)

    I marinated the chicken for a long time and I found it to be dry. Maybe I just overcooked it. The sauce was really good, though so that made up for the chicken not being the best.

    Yummy!!! The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was due to the sauce not getting at thick as I would have liked. The flavor on the chicken alone was amazing. I loved it and will be making it again.

    The peanut sauce is really good. Even my picky eaters loved this recipe. (The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because it turned out a little dry. I'm sure we just left it on the grill too long.)

    I did not enjoy the peanut sauce. Maybe I made it wrong but it was too sweet and grainy for me. Maybe it was the type of peanut butter. I upped the curry powder and the chicken was great. Served with ginger-orange jasmine rice and curry sauteed mushrooms.

    Why does wait say 2 hours?

    I am not sure but the time allows the seasonings to marinate to really get into the meat. I allowed my meat to marinate over 12 hours. It was awesome for dinner.

    @Anonymous- Like Kendra stated, the 2 hour 'wait time' is the marinate time. Marinades need at least 30 minutes to start working, but will yield better results if marinaded longer. They are used to help add flavor to meat and help tenderize them, making the meat more juicy.

    @Anonymous- While a select number of our recipes contain nutritional data, this is not something we currently offer for all recipes on the site. However, if you do a quick internet search you will find a number of websites that provide nutritional data calculators that will allow you to plug in recipes or ingredients and will calculate the nutritional information for you. This data will vary slightly depending on the brands you are using or the calculating software.

    This was Amazing! The sauce was the best. I cooked the sauce longer then it called for in the recipe because I wanted it thicker. This is a new favorite.

    The whole family liked this one! We have a peanut allergy so used soy butter in place of the peanut butter. Stilled tasted good!

    This was amazing! I used the marinade and cooked it in the crockpot. Went great with yellow rice recipe on the label of McCormick's Tumeric seasoning. Added frozen broccoli instead of peas! Looking forward to making it again!
