Peanut Butter Chicken

This chicken recipe is one of my hubby's favorites.  And, I'm pretty sure it's actual name is NOT peanut butter chicken, but (besides "yummy") that's what we call it at my house.


½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup water
¼  cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
¾ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
sliced green onions ~ for garnish

What to do:

1.  Stir together: peanut butter, water, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, brown sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 1 minute or until smooth, cool.

2.  Reserve at least half of the sauce for dipping (you do not want to use this to brush onto your raw chicken).  Then, brush the rest of the sauce onto the chicken.

3.  Grill chicken on a medium hot grill for about 8 minutes, turning once.  Brush with any additional sauce while grilling.

4.  Serve with reserved sauce and sprinkle with green onions.

Mmmm Mmmm Good!

Actually, my husband likes the sauce so much by itself he loves it when I make a little extra that way he can dip his bread or whatever else he can find in it.


Party on my friends, party on :)
