This was easy, and it was very good. I loved the peanut flavor, and spicy hints. I would not change a thing--I followed the recipe exactly.


What a great dish. I love the spices mixed with peanut butter. It was a delicious meal and when trying to think of what I would do differently, I couldn't think of anything!


I really liked this chicken, and my son gobbled it up. We grown-ups would have liked a little more spice, but it was perfect for the kiddos. Next time I'll keep an eye on the cook time, as my bell peppers were a little mushy. The flavor was great, though, and we'll make this again for sure! Don't skip the garnish. It makes the meal.
