Something else. I was surprised at how tasty this was. I altered it a bit and left out the garlic and hot sauce. Marinated the chicken about 5 hours then sauteed the chicken in the marinade. The marinade thickened and clung to the chicken. The only complaint I have using my version is the chicken was a tad salty even though I used low salt soy sauce. My husband declared it one of his favourites and I'll make this again! - 08 Oct 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. With the addition of 2 more tablespoons of peanut butter, this marinade was truly delicious. I pounded boneless skinless chicken breasts thinly, marinated them overnight in this mixture, then baked them at 200 degrees for 35 minutes. Served with rice pilaf and asian coleslaw.The family thoroughly enjoyed this one. Thank you. - 08 Oct 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Easy to make and nice results. I used more peanut butter and less curry. - 08 Oct 2008
