Sorry Trixxee, my Thai files are very lean. I just recently started making Thai food. I'll be anxious to see what comes up here. Sadly, I don't even know what Rama is.
Keep your mind wide open.

Well, I'm not sure if the Rama refers to the peanut sauce or the spinach in it - or neither! But I have had it at a local Thai hole in the wall and it was really good.

It is chicken served on wilted spinach with a peanut sauce on top - can also be called a swimming Angel. There were quite a few peanut sauces floating around on previous posts. All you really need to do is grill, poach, saute some chicken and serve over spinach with the peanut sauce and rice on the side.

Well, that sounds really good! I've got a good peanut sauce, so this may go on the menu next week. Thanks Trixxee AND Erin!

I can't help but wonder what it would be like to use the chicken and sauce part of the Thia Chicken Skewer wraps we did for Lab's review dinner. But instead of serving on lettuce leaves, serve on the wilted spinach?

We really liked the flavors in that one.

have not had anything with the peanut sauce for the longest time - guess the time is now. Trixxee, thanks for bringing it up.

Daph, I love your idea!! Where can I find the recipe for Labs dinner review Thai Chicken?
I might do this tonite, with shrimp.

NOTES : 1/28/08 I served this with fried rice. I made the rice just in case William didn’t like the wraps. I’ve mentioned before that we had a very bad experience with cilantro before, so I was afraid this one was going to be a bust. Boy was I off the mark on that. He gobbled up the chicken and said I could make this any time I wanted to. When I asked him to rate them on a scale of 1 to 10, he gave them an 11. I made them exactly by the recipe. I can see this being a favorite this spring and summer on the deck. It had such a light fresh taste.
Keep your mind wide open.

Thanks Daph, I see I'll have to make a few adjustments, but this will work with shrimp!
