    This isn't bad, but it needs improvement from ones I have had in the restaurants. I added too much peanut butter (heaping tbsp scoops), I added some chicken broth to compensate. This toned it down a bit as far as the peanut buttery-ness goes and also adding chicken broth would allow this recipe to serve more people. I tried it finished without the chicken broth, then decided on it afterwards. It needs to be a bit spicier though I think. I added a bit of sriracha while cooking chicken, I added that too. I also added some egg when I added the chicken broth to it and did not have any bean sprouts, which was a bummer, however I don't know how much extra flavor bean sprouts alone would help things here. Every thing else I had. I would recommend the chicken and the egg. I give it a six and a half rounded to a seven and I gave it a four star hear because 3 would be a downgrade from my initial rating. I'll have to let you know next time how it goes with all of the ingredients. Thanks for the recipe.
