Chicken was very good. My variations were using ground coriander and cumin instead of seeds, not using turmeric(just didn't have on hand), and marinating about an extra hour. Next time I plan on using stove-top and putting the chicken on rice.

Just made this last night and it was a hit. Store was out of the rice noodles so served it with udon noodles instead. Dressed the noodles with the sesame oil, some teriyaki, the cucumber, and some poppy seeds. When I make this again; I think I'll use breast tenders instead.

The chicken is out of this world! I used organic boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes. Organic chicken tends to be smaller and more tender than the regular chicken breasts. I think this dish would be wonderful to serve as an appetizer or as individual pieces for a party. The rice noodle side they recommended was rather bland, so I added some salt and pepper, but I still think it needs something else. I may try the teriyaki as suggested by one of the reviewers.

This was delicious! The marinade is so flavorful. I made it on a grill pan instead of the grill. I also did not have the cumin seeds or coriander seeds so I just used ground spices. I made thighs for my husband and used chicken breast for myself and we both loved it. Next time I am going to make it spicier because I love the heat!

I think this recipe could be much better with a few changes. I used chicken thighs as the recipe suggests and I was really disappointed with the texture of the meat. I will use chicken breasts next time as many other reviewers did. I also used both coriander seeds and cumin seeds. I spent a lot of time grinding the seeds in the food processor and I didn't think the flavor was any stronger than if I had used powdered spices. I will use powdered spices next time.

Wonderful marinade. I had drumsticks and was feeling lazy so I slashed the legs before I put in marinade and then just grilled whole.

Excellent dinner, for a family of 5 we could have used more. I would do 3 packets of ramen noodles (plain) then add sesame sauce like suggested. Noodles were also great with penzy's Bangkok spice blend

This was really good and my picky 5 year old gobbled it up. We had with coconut rice (needed to use the rest of the can of coconut milk) and cucumbers.
