Yes, I know it seems a little weird. If you’ve never tried peanut sauce, there’s a lot of variety. Some are thicker, some are spicier, and some are a little weird-tasting. The basic ingredients of any peanut sauce are peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and maybe some other stuff. Try it. It rocks. For store-bought, I recommend House of Tsang. It costs about 4 dollars for a bottle. For this delicious Thai chicken recipe, here’s an easy version you can make in your blender.
Blend until smooth:
1/4 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. honey
2 T. soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
8 slices pickled jalapeno
Marinate in the sauce for at least an hour:
1 lb. chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts
To cook, preheat the oven to 375. Place chicken and sauce in a greased casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes.
Serve the Thai chicken with rice and steamed veggies. We especially like broccoli. I like to cook my rice in the Instant Pot: 3 c. rice, 4 1/2 c. water, 5 minutes at high pressure, and quick release.
