This recipe was nasty. The peanuts did not go well with the other ingrediants. Keep peanuts away from this!

This was pretty good. I did make add a few things to give it more flavor, but that's pretty normal for me. We did more of an asian flare by creating a sauce/paste before rolling it in the crushed chicken. We used soy sauce, Chinese hot mustard, hot chili sauce, etc. besides the garlic and other items. It turned into a five star recipe once we added the other items. We served cucumber peanut salad on the side, and it was a wonderful meal! Thanks for the recipe. We love trying things that are a little out of the ordinary.

I didn't have much appetite for dinner so I made this just for Husband. I thought it looked and smelled great, but he was kinda meh about it. This was definitely quick and easy, but I won't be making it again. Thanks anyway!
