    Beautiful. Loved it and even customers at work who could smell it wanted the recipe! Didn't have spring onion though, and put bean sprouts on top to serve not cook cos I like the cold crisp alternative. My partner is now spending a lot less on takeaway!  -  24 Oct 2013


    After reading the reviews i decided to give the receipe a go, keeping in mind it's peanutty flavour which i love anyway! I did as one suggestion said added garlic, just used veggies from the fridge, ie broccoli, red onion, peppers & spinach. Used water instead of broth, at least 1 cup in the end and a more flatter shaped pasta. Finally it was cooked BBQ'd chicken that went in and the final result i must say was fantastic. My boyfriend is a chef and he loved it, and inspired him for a new menu idea at his restaurant!! Well done Holly  -  18 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thoght it was a nice recipe. However a little thick. I recommend adding 1/3 cup coconut milk, an additional 1/4 cup chicken broth and Linguini instead of angel hair. That would make it a 5 star  -  20 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
