Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

27 Dec

This is a simple recipe that can be easily customized and paired with all kinds of veggies and sides. I love peanut sauces, but this one lacked the peanut punch I was really hoping for. So, if you like more peanut flavor, I suggest adding a bit more!

Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

1 pound Chicken, In Chunks
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Lime Juice
1 tsp Minced Garlic (approximately 1 Large Clove)
1 Tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 tsp Curry Powder
1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional)
Cilantro and Sesame Seeds for garnish (optional)

Mix ingredients and marinate chicken for 2-3 hours.

Cook chicken in the sauce over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is done. Reduce heat to medium-low and add precooked veggies if desired. Serve topped with sesame seeds and cilantro.

To thicken sauce if needed: reduce heat to medium-low and add a cornstarch slurry (1 teaspoon cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water).

*If using regular peanut butter (i.e. Skippy) instead of natural peanut butter, reduce honey by 1 Tablespoon.

    This looks so good! I’m usually a bit intimidated by asian recipes, but this seems fairly simple. Thanks!
