Quick & Easy Peanut Chicken Dinner

I love chicken, and my family does too, but sometimes chicken gets old. So I am constantly brainstorming new ways to make chicken seem more exciting. With Joey’s newfound love of peanut butter, I decided it was a great time to experiment with a peanut chicken. This recipe was incredibly easy to make and it seemed to be a hit with the family!


1 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thin-sliced

1/3 cup natural peanut butter

1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce

1 Tbs agave

½ cup water

2 tsp minced garlic

½ tsp minced ginger

½ tsp crushed red pepper

1 large sweet onion, sliced

1 Tbs olive oil

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and add in sliced onions. While onions brown, warm peanut butter in a small pan or in microwave to thin. Pour soy sauce, water, agave, garlic, ginger, and red pepper into thinned peanut butter and mix until smooth. Pour sauce over onions and allow to simmer for two minutes. Add chicken breasts to skillet and sauté in sauce until evenly browned on both sides and cooked throughout. Serve warm with steamed vegetables on the side.
