The recipe title Peanut Butter Chicken intrigued me as did the list of ingredients. What a unique combination of flavors and one I'd certainly never put together, really quite delicious.
I've tried it all sorts of ways, but my favorite is grilled on the bar-b-que.
In a small saucepan combine the following ingredients:
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C water
1/4 C soy sauce
2 tsp. minced garlic
3 T lemon juice
2 T brown sugar
3/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
Cook and stir over medium to high heat for 5 minutes or until smooth. Set half of the sauce aside.
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Slice chicken into strips about 1" wide and as long as the breast. Place onto skewers which have been soaked in water for at least 20 minutes.
Leave breasts whole.
Brush chicken with sauce often while grilling. Skewers will take 4-6 minutes to cook. Whole breasts, of course, will take longer.
Serve chicken with reserved sauce and sprinkled with sliced green onion tops (optional). However, no onions in my family. :(
Something to consider: This is one recipe I wish I'd never had my kids help me prepare. The ingredients have scared a few away from eating it.
