Chicken in Peanut Butter Sauce

With A Blast: Chicken In Peanut Butter Sauce  {delicious!}   #chicken  #peanutbutter

I love savory dishes with Peanut Butter, but do not make it that often as I have a certain {not always, but now and then} picky eater who does not like Peanut Butter in any other way, than on bread.

Roy and I were busy painting the other day, and by the time I looked at the time, it was already past dinner time.  So, I grabbed my little recipe book, published by a magazine group, and found this quick chicken recipe which I adapted.

The chicken was ready just before the rice had finished cooking in my rice cooker, which is very quick. I served this dish over Basmati rice with a crunchy green salad on the side.


{4 - 6 portions}

1/2 cup Milk
1/2 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
4 t Sesame Oil
1 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
250g Mushrooms, sliced 
500g Chicken Fillets, cut into large chunks

1.) Heat the Milk until just warm - add the Peanut Butter and mix well - keep aside.
2.) Saute the Green Bell Pepper and the Mushrooms in the Sesame Oil until soft - remove from pan and keep aside.
3.) Using the same pan, fry the Chicken chunks until just about done - season lightly with Salt - add half of the Peanut Butter Sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
4.) Add the Green Bell Pepper and the Mushrooms back to the pan with the Chicken together with the remaining Peanut Butter Sauce - simmer a further 5 minutes.

Serve over rice with salads or vegetables on the side.

Hope you enjoy !
