Thais never use peanut butter, as they don't have it in Thailand. VBG Use fresh peanuts, roasted in a skillet then chop-much better flavour. Most of the peanut butter contains other ingredients like stabliizers, preservatives, even sugar, etc. Almonds would fight the peanut flavour. Also a good splash of nam pla IE fish sauce is great in this dish. Shanti/Mary-Anne

I have tried Thai style Sipcy Green chicken recipe and this one with peanut butter is something yet to try. Thai chickeen curries are quire flavorful and peanut butter is something I love to add in any of my recipes. Apart from the taste, I feel, peanut butter will also give the dish the desired thickness! I hope it's the normal peanut butter you get in supermarkets?
