I LOVED this dish! It was fantastic! Truly the "peanut" flavored chicken I have been searching for!! I know I may have said that before....but this really, really IS the peanut chicken I have been looking for!
This is another One Perfect Bite masterpiece, by the way (and I swear, I am not stalking Mary)! I did not change the ingredients, but I did change the method of cooking. I went with the more stir fry way of cooking.... and no, Andrea, I did not use the velveting technique on this one either... sorry :( I'm just lazy, I can't help it sometimes!
Not only does this chicken taste fantastic, but it is a very simple dish to throw together.... and with a week like I've been having, simple and quick are life savers! You can adjust the heat on this by cutting back on the curry and Sriracha, but I would have to agree with Mary when she says don't leave the Sriracha out all together...it just adds something wonderful to the chicken!
(by the way, you'll see orange peppers in the pictures, but those were in my rice, not in with my chicken, so don't think I left out an ingredient.)
Thai Style Honey Peanut Chicken
Adapted from One Perfect Bite
3 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used low sodium)
1/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons Sriracha
1 lbs. chicken, cut into bite size chunks
1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together all the ingredients, except the chicken and the oil, until smooth; set aside.
In a deep skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the chicken and stir fry for 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through. Add the sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Allow to cook until the sauce has thickened. Serve over rice and enjoy!!
