This is the easiest recipe for peanut butter chicken you will be able to find. But it tastes amazing, made in a short 20 minutes with just a handful of ingredients.
Inspired with Thai flavors this chicken dish packs a powerful peanut butter taste punch. The sauce for the chicken is stellar. Creamy peanut butter mixed with chicken stock, fresh lime juice and red chili’s make this phenomenal sauce, no hard to pronounce or find exotic Thai ingredients. This sauce is easy and quick and tastes delicious.
Lime juice brings in a fresh citrusy note cutting through the richness and dominant favor of peanut butter. Red chilies add a mild heat wave that I love. But if you are not a fan of spicy food or making this dish for the kids you can absolutely omit the spicy peppers.
Peanut butter chicken is usually served over your favorite rice like white or brown. I also like to complement the dish with green veggies like green beans or broccoli whatever I have sitting in my fridge with no destination.
This dish is perfect for any occasion, great for a quick mid week dinner or a weekend date night. The flavors are unique and simple at the same time creating a mouthwatering and original meal. Follow the steps below to make peanut butter chicken.
