Barbecued Peanut Chicken Breasts

    25 minutes

    This is a great chicken recipe to cook on the BBQ, it reminds me of a chicken satay but by keeping the breast whole it is far more juicy and tender.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I've make this minus the curry, (can't seem to acquire a taste for that) Make double (or triple) sauce, warm it up and serve it over some kind of asian noodles pad tai style... or linguini or angel hair. A sprinkling of finely chopped green onions is a good add in. Thinning out the sauce with a little chicken stock if it's too thick. I prefer using the crunchy peanut butter or I've also topped it with chopoped peanuts. My peanut butter lovin' 4 year old eats it up.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. The sauce is VERY thick. I added another tbsp of soy sauce plus some water to thin it out enough to baste the chicken. What a different cooking method makes! The first time I made this, I baked it and it came out pretty good. Recently, I followed the recipe and grilled it. The grill roasts the peanut butter and gives it a carmelised flavour that baking just cannot replicate. While the chicken was grilling, I made a douple recipe of the sauce, added 1 1/2 tsp sugar and more water, and brought it to a boil in a sauce pan. I served the chicken over whole wheat pasta and topped with the extra sauce.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Wasn't too bad. I found though that brushing the chicken with the sauce before it was cooked through just made the sauce burn. I think it would work better to cook the chicken first and then add the sauce at the end more like a glaze. It tastes good though.  -  22 Oct 2009
