This chicken turned out delicious, however, it needed some tweeking so I only gave the original recipe four stars. Thanks to other reviewers I increased the recipe for the sauce quite a bit. This is necessary as having extra for a dipping sauce is a MUST! I did add a little water (tried olive oil too, but didn't work as well). It is too thick if you don't. You have to really watch this on the grill so the sauce doesn't get burnt. Also, as one reviewer suggested, I added some brown sugar just to the dipping sauce. This makes a huge difference also. I probably increased the sauce by 4xs, but I was cooking 8 breasts. We will definitely make it again. Thanks!

I've make this minus the curry, (can't seem to acquire a taste for that) Make double (or triple) sauce, warm it up and serve it over some kind of asian noodles pad tai style... or linguini or angel hair. A sprinkling of finely chopped green onions is a good add in. Thinning out the sauce with a little chicken stock if it's too thick. I prefer using the crunchy peanut butter or I've also topped it with chopoped peanuts. My peanut butter lovin' 4 year old eats it up.

The sauce is VERY thick. I added another tbsp of soy sauce plus some water to thin it out enough to baste the chicken. What a different cooking method makes! The first time I made this, I baked it and it came out pretty good. Recently, I followed the recipe and grilled it. The grill roasts the peanut butter and gives it a carmelized flavor that baking just cannot replicate. While the chicken was grilling, I made a douple recipe of the sauce, added 1 1/2 tsp sugar and more water, and brought it to a boil in a sauce pan. I served the chicken over whole wheat pasta and topped with the extra sauce.
