It turned out very tasty, but I had to make a couple modifications. Try using room temperature pb and add about 3/4 cups of water to the peanut sauce or it will clump and stick to the pan. If possible, prepare the sauce separately and then add it to the chicken.


Boy, this recipe needed a lot of help to be palatable. First of all, sesame oil is not a good choice for browning anything. It is strongly flavored and has a very low smoking point. Most Asian recipes use it as a flavoring ingredient, not a frying medium. I used peanut oil to brown the chicken tenders after seasoning them with salt, pepper and Asian pepper spice. After browning, I removed them from the pan to prevent over-cooking. The sauce was way too thick and I thought the flavor rather one dimentional, so I added one tsp sesame oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, 5-spice powder and a little water to thin it. I heated the sauce in the skillet, and when it was hot, put the chicken tenders back in. They were okay, but not very Thai,IMO. There are better recipes on this site. Sorry.


Awesome! I did what other reviewers said - I put the peanut butter (chunky), ginger, 3/4 cup water and hoison sauce in a small saucepan and heated it up. Cooked the chicken in the sesame oil and then added the sauce. I didn't have cayenne pepper so I used crushed red pepper - made it nice and spicy! Didn't have any scallions so just skipped them. Served it with Jasmine rice.
