Made this last night (11-25-17) with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. The only thing I did different was I used ground ginger instead of fresh, since I didn't have any. It was still delicious and I will be making this again with chicken or turkey. I'm glad there was a little left over so I can eat more today.

This was absolutely delicious! If you like Thai peanut sauce, you'll love this recipe. I made it per the directions (except for used 4 cups of rotisserie chicken in place of 3 cups of turkey and 3 oz more chicken broth to use the whole 48 oz package) and it was more like a soup. The next time I would double the green pepper and sweet potato and add even more chicken so it would be a thicker stew consistency. I also halved the red pepper because I don't like super spicy things. It was so good!
