23 Oct Recipe Thursday – Spicy Peanut Chicken
Spicy Peanut Chicken
Boneless chicken thighs and Broccolini, both coated in a chili-spiked peanut sauce,
emerge deliciously caramelized after just 10 minutes under the broiler. Serve with sliced cucumbers.
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sambal oelek (ethnicfoods.com)**
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
4 skinless chicken thighs
1 bunch Broccolini or Broccoli
Mix together peanut butter, water,
sesame oil, soy sauce, sambal oelek, and rice vinegar.
Toss chicken thighs and Broccolini in sauce.
Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
Broil 10 inches from heat until chicken is cooked through,
about 10 minutes (watch to make sure it doesn’t burn).
**Because Sambal Oelek’s main contribution is heat, you can substitute using one of the following:
sriracha, chili paste, harissa, Tabasco, red pepper flakes,or chili powder.
Double or triple based on number of chicken thighs you will be preparing.
