Peanut Sesame Chicken

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I'm the laughingstock among family and friends for taking pictures everywhere....especially at mealtimes. People see me with my camera and either run for the hills or start posing, usually it's running for the hills. But this recipe right here is why they put up with it. Since I started this recipe blog, I've started branching out and trying new things we've never had before...all in the name of a good blog post. This recipe makes a peanutty, tender chicken that made me feel like I was eating in a fancy Chinese restaurant!

















The ingredients:















1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

2 Tbs. brown sugar

1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds

1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. peanut oil (I used sesame oil instead)
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves*

In saucepan, combine all ingredients except chicken. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently for 1 minute.















Grill or broil chicken, turning and brushing occasionally with 1/2 cup peanut/sesame sauce, for 12 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.















Serve with remaining sauce and with Warm Peanut-Sesame Noodles. I topped with another tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds. Serves 4.















*My chicken breasts were really thick, so I sliced each one in half so it would cook more evenly and quickly.

Enjoy!

You are killing me, girl...this looks intoxicating! My husband doesn't like Asian food so I'm out of luck : (
