Peanut Butter Chicken? Really?
You wouldn’t think that peanut butter and chicken would be a good combination but I am here to tell you, it is amazing. I first had this delectable delight at Chinese buffet, and I knew I could make it at home. Peanut Butter Chicken is an easy dish to prepare, and when you can find the chicken on sale, it’s a pretty inexpensive dish that feeds a crowd. And with as easy as it is to make a large batch of it, it will soon become a crowd favorite.
Choosing your Peanuts for Peanut Butter Chicken
I love using a salted kettle roasted peanut for my Peanut Butter Chicken. The fresh taste is amazing, and you don’t need to worry about the pesky skins on Spanish Peanuts. The salt is just enough to give the Peanut Butter Chicken a marvelous flavor without making it too salty to eat. Paired with your favorite peanut butter, you have a dish of Peanut Butter Chicken that is savory and perfect.
- 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
- 1 lb kettle roasted peanuts
- 3 eggs
- 1 C breadcrumbs
- baking spray
- 2 C crunchy peanut butter
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Spray baking sheets with baking spray.
- Pulse the peanuts in a food processor or blender until finely ground but not powdered. Place in a shallow bowl.
- In another shallow bowl, whisk the eggs together.
- Coat the chicken in egg, then in peanuts. Place on the baking tray. Continue until all the chicken is coated.
- Bake 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is done throughout.
- Heat the peanut butter in the microwave 1-2 minutes, until warm and melted.
- To serve, place chicken on a plate and cover with peanut butter.

The Xinjiang region’s economy grew by 12 percent in 2012, compared to 2011, but many Uighurs complain that better-paying jobs, land and business opportunities are beyond their grasp. Uighurs account for a little under half of Xinjiang’s 22 million civilian inhabitants; Han Chinese account for 40 percent, according to government data. The Hotan area has about two million inhabitants, nearly 97 percent of them Uighur, according to census data from 2010.

Hey, I noticed your recipe calls for bread crumbs but the directions never mentions them. Are they needed or an option? Or did you forget to type them in? I really want to try this recipe so please let me know where the breadcrumb stand. Thanks!

I noticed the same thing and looking at the picture it looks like maybe we should mix them with the peanuts before dredging the chicken.

It also looks like she has used Panko breadcrumbs

The breading is essential to the texture of chicken, otherwise: The chicken feels slimy, & the chicken won’t “Grab” enough of the sauce.

Peanut butter topping:
In glass bowl, wisk together 1c. smooth peanut butter, 1/4c. low-sodium soy sauce, and 1/2c. hot water till smooth. Pour over chicken.
To thin sauce: add more hot water or thicken with peanut butter.
I baked 2 chicken breasts whole for 45 minutes @ 400 degrees. The breasts were about 1# each. Then after breasts were finished cooking, I cut them into 1/2″ – 3/4″ pieces and poured the peanut sauce over them. That’s the way I’ve seen it served at Chen’s Mongolian Grill here in Michigan.

Thank you for your peanut butter chicken recipe. The first time I had it I to thought it was a weird combination. But it is absolutely amazing. When I had it, it was very crunchy. Almost like it had ground up peanut brittle ground up also. Very yummy. Of course they would not give out family Secret.
