Chicken stir fry question, peanut butter?

Hi I am going to give a try at making this


would it be ick or maybe tasty to add some natural peanut butter and some chili paste to the recipe?

  1. I don't use oyster sauce, so not sure how it would taste with that, but otherwise, I think it sounds yummy! I like to add peanut butter and chilies to stir fries.

    1. I would try it for sure. It sounds like it would be delicious. Start with a small amount, you can always add more

      1. Tasty for sure. In fact, I had a quick and dirty stirfry tonight with a three-ingredient sauce - soy, sriracha and peanut butter. Excellent.

          yes, soy, pb and sambal are an easy go-to for me as well.

        2. I am sure it would be great-

          I've played around with peanut sauce and turns out great with oyster, soy, fish sauce, lime, etc.... So I might add some lime and just a bit of fish sauce if you have it.... but I bet it will rock with just the PB addition.

          1. thanks - will go with it :)

            serving it over noodles as well instead of rice

            1. It came out nicely but it sat for a little and gave off all this liquid from the vegetables,
              I don't know how the restaurants keep that from happening even if you eat the food the next day

              I am thinking extra cornstarch

              anyone have a way to fix the watery stir fry?

              what a bummer

              it tasted great tho :)

                  Thanks for all the ?'s - each one will help me (and other cooks) as we try new-to-us recipes.

                2. I've made this recipe many, many times (and variations of it). It is my go-to stir fry recipe. I love it. Thanks for sharing the idea about using PB.
