Chicken in peanut sauce,

by: admin Chicken


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • ½ pound chicken breast
  • 7 ounces coconut milk
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (without sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon brown sugar
  • Chili flakes to taste
  • 1 medium-size lime
  • Cilantro for decoration


  1. Mince the garlic.
  2. Grate the ginger. (Peeling is optional.)
  3. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces, about one inch across.
  4. Add oil, garlic and ginger to a large skillet (or pot) and sauté over medium heat until the garlic and ginger are soft.
  5. Add the chicken to the skillet. Sauté until the chicken is lightly brown on the outside and cooked all the way through. This will normally take about 10 minutes.
  6. Turn the heat down to low before stirring in coconut milk and peanut butter. If the heat is too high, the coconut milk can separate.
  7. Stir in soy sauce, brown sugar and chili flakes.
  8. Cut the lime and squeeze it over the dish to add the juice (but not the rest of the lime).
  9. Cook for 10 minutes.
  10. Chop the cilantro and sprinkle it on top of the dish before serving.
