    This is a fantastic recipe, I made this for my Dinner tonight with steamed vegetables in place of the salad. Thank you, I now have enough for Dinner tomorrow night as well.

    I made this for my family tonight & I used an organic crunchy peanut butter & low salt tamari instead. I didn’t have coconut cream and used a tin of organic coconut milk. I chopped the chicken in cubes as well as red onion & red capsicum and threaded these in between the chicken cubes. It was absolutely delicious!! The whole family loved it. Thank you xx
