love this...i dont have a barbecue but cooked it in the oven and it was great - the chicken was sooo tender For the peanut butter i used smooth and this helped with brushing it on the chicken, although next time i will make twice the amount of sauce. I just need to find a good side to go with it - the veg rice i made didnt do it any justice. - 05 Aug 2011


Something else. I sliced the cooked peanut chicken breast's and tossed them into a frying pan with fried sliced red pepper,chopped spring onions and bean sprouts,thn mixed it all together with some medium egg noodles!Sort of like a 'chow mein'!It was very tasty - 10 Mar 2010


I loved how this recipe used bog standard ingredients to make a really exciting dish. I didn't have any trouble as did the previous reviewer, josefeen -- though I did bake mine in the oven (no bbq). My oven was at 180 and I did as the recipe originally stated (using half the sauce, and then turning halfway through and basting with the remaining sauce). I think in all I baked the chicken for about 35 minutes, give or take. All in all it was delicious and I'll definitely make it again!! - 29 Sep 2008
