This Indonesian-inspired recipe has been with me through primary school to my adult life. I've made this dish for just about everybody I know and they've all enjoyed it.
I was looking forward to this recipe because I love peanut sauces and fresh green beans but my family wasn't as excited. Once they got a couple of bites, they were sold and kept asking for more. I thought the chile paste might have been too strong for the kids but nobody minded and I thought it was just perfect for me. I even liked the way the rice was cooked on this recipe versus the way I would normally cook it. Next time, I'll probably make twice the rice and twice the sauce. Fantastic recipe! - 13 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum! We really like this dish. The recipe calls for low-sodium chicken broth and soy sauce and this is important or it turn out too salty. - 21 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was fabulous and I will definitely be adding it to the rotation. I was a little leery about the peanut butter but it didn't taste like peanut butter at all. Just a really flavorful peanut sauce. I had some thin-cut pork chops on hand which I sliced into thin strips which worked great for this, instead of chicken. Also when I got home, the dogs had gotten into the cabinet and eaten the honey so I just added some sugar instead. I doubled the sauce (and I'm glad I did) because I'm always scared there won't be enough sauce. Oh, and I added some chopped fresh cilantro as a garnish which really added to it, making a nice fresh flavor. I'm trying to get my burgers-n-fries boyfriend to branch out and accept ethnic food, and he loved this! Awesome recipe!!! - 18 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
