    This was delicious and super easy to make! I’ve tried it a couple of different ways with similar ingredients, just different methods (frozen chicken breast strips instead of rotisserie or leftover baked chicken, etc). I used House of Tsang Bangkok Padang Peanut Sauce which has quite a kick. I prefer it chilled and the peanuts taste fine after being chilled although I have not used sesame seeds so far. My teenage son also enjoyed it but my teen daughter found it too spicy for her taste.
