I didn’t have a lot of chicken so I bypassed the cucumber sauce. If you like having it, you might find a recipe for it here: Thai Cucumber Sauce. I had posted that recipe years ago on another site.

The little red peppers you see on the chicken can be quite spicy. Spicier than jalapeno. I like them a lot. But if you don’t like it too spicy you can omit. Careful when using fresh peppers anyway as they can vary in spice intensity. Taste and see before serving to your guests.
