Looks very tasty! I bet it would go great in spring roll wrappers or as a filling for a lettuce wrap. Is the chicken cooked with Thai ingredients/flavors?

I've made it only a couple of times. The cicken was always from left overs. I've never cooked any specifically for this recipe. But if I was to, I would most certainly find something Asian to cook them in. Thank you!

I would probably poach them in a broth with Asian ... somethings! I have been using Katie Lee's version of poaching and I love it! The chicken comes out more tender than I've ever had it before!

Simmer your broth with seasonings for about 20 min. Add chicken breasts and simmer no longer than 20 min. Internal temp... umm... I forget, 160?
Do not let them 'set'/'store' in the liquid as this seems to suck out the juices and can make the chicken very dry.

I would use some yellow curry paste dissolved in coconut milk, add some lemon grass, galangal, fish sauce and kaffir lime leaves. Poach the chicken in this sauce. Add chilis if you want heat. Just a suggestion.

I am going to try this with tahini instead of the peanut butter. i really like Thai, but I can't do peanuts right now.

Mmm, yeah! what CraigC said! Probably use, well maybe the red Thai Kitchen's curry paste, I have some dried lemongrass and fish sauce, but i think I'm retiring the fish sauce.

Any ruling on the health pros and cons of fish sauce?? I like it, but i know it's rich of sodium. Is it bad for inflammation then too?? (the fish parts would be good I'd think, but idk how much is actually fish)

I don't think people generally use enough for it to make much difference in one's health.

Craig is right.

There's not much in the recipe that's Thai.

LOL - I didn't name the recipe, I just make it.

Although I sort of disagree with you, about the only thing in there that you would NOT find in Thai cooking are the suggestions to use the wraps.

And Thanks to which ever Admin. that found the original. I have now fixed my own files to reflect where I got it from. I should actually be making it in a while and will post my own picture.

Plus Thanks to the Admin for researching and finding the original recipe. So simple to find, just click on the pic! LOL..

Anyhow I have fixed my own files to reflect where it came from. I will take a picture of my own soon to post with it.

Thanks GotGarlic! (if the "thanks" option didn't work)

jennyema-(ahh, keep forgetting there's a multiquote option)-Thai or not...actually, you're probably right though. There really are no spices to it ha! yeah, it's a good baseline though. You'll soon notice I primarily cook Indian or I make everything Indian-ish :P, but I am definitely interested in authentic ethnic foods when I can make them fit my diet. I should say I love the fresh ingredients of Thai, but this was pretty basic I suppose looking closer.

dragnlaw-clicked the link (the new one I guess) don't know what you mean by click on the pic though. Anyway, yeah take a pic. It'll be cool! :)
