An Easy Peanut Chicken Recipe For Appetizers Or Dinner!

I love bruschetta in all different forms, like my whipped feta bruschetta or a light tropical shrimp bruschetta.

What are you going to serve to drink with this? Beer, and lots of it. The spicy peanut chicken topped with sriracha is just yelling for you to go and grab a few cold ones.

The peanut sauce for this recipe is one that my wife has been using for years, we use it as a base for a lot of recipes. Make up the satay sauce and pour it all over the chicken, throw some scallions on top and bake it in the oven.

You could stop right at this point and serve this chicken over rice. It comes out of the oven looking like this – awesome chicken satay.

So like I said, serve this peanut chicken recipe as is with ramen noodles, rice and some steamed broccoli and dinner is served! Our boys absolutely LOVE this peanut chicken, they cut it up and make rice bowls or noodles bowls for dinner

    I love thie chicken satay recipe, too! And like our Canadian friend Helene I am suitably impressed that you so easily got your Best Friend in the Kitchen doing FIVE things for you at once! I just adore savoury coconut dishes so this one goes into my Thermomix very soon. I can already taste the rice cooked in coconut milk and my mouth is watering at the thought of it! Brilliant, Jo, many thanks!

    Just found your site, love it! Everything I’ve tried is easy to make and very good! I’m switching my elderly parents and myself to a low carb diet. I’ve just been diagnosed with diabetes and trying to find meals I can make for all of us that are carb friendly for me and potato rich for them.

    I have a request, as you review your recipes…please check that they all have nutrition info in them…it helps alot! (this one does not, of course it should be low…without the bread!)

    Its like cooking with kids….I’m carb exacting, not watching!. My 74 yo kids want startches!! LOL

      We do try, unfortunately adding nutrition content does take quite a bit of work and we just can’t do it on all of our recipes at this time. Thank you though for following along!
