This Peanut Butter chicken has quickly landed a starring role in my dinner lineup! Years ago, my husband was the only one who ate it. Now that my kids are older, they love it too! And I love how easy and quick it is! It reheats very well and is perfect over some simple and comforting white rice.
Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Chicken
My favorite part of this recipe is that it is from the pan to the plate in just twenty minutes. That makes it the perfect weeknight meal! I like to use chicken thighs because they are a little less dry than traditional chicken breasts.
Just simply dice up the chicken into bite size pieces. In a heavy pan, brown the chicken. While the chicken is cooking, make your peanut sauce. Whisk together soy sauce, creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, olive oil, ground ginger and white vinegar.
The peanut butter sauce is just delicious over some sticky white rice. Because this meal ends up being on the heavy side, it does usually leave some leftovers. Good news is that this peanut butter chicken recipe is great as leftovers. You can even warm it up in the microwave or reheat in a pan.
