“This is a dish you will probably need to play around with as everyone has different tastes for peanut chicken, I suggest you start with the ingredient amounts stated in this recipe and mabey adjust slightly to taste, you will know after you make this dish a few times how you prefer it. You also might want to add in a tablespoon or two of fresh cilantro. Adjust the cayenne to desired heat level that you like. I would suggest to prepare the peanut sauce before you start cooking the chicken thighs.”
