Pretty good. I used thigh meat. I will make again, but maybe add a little more heat of some kind, and thicken the sauce more.

My family loves peanut butter, but my kids didn't care for this recipe. It seemed to me like it was missing something and yes i followed the recipe exactly

What a wonderful picture. I made it tonight. It was "Kiss the Cook" good! A definite favorite. I used thighs instead of breasts and they worked fine.
