Thai Honey Peanut Chicken


This was really easy and really good. I love sweet and spicy.

I made a bit over half of this recipe for the two of us. I did add a bit more curry powder and about 1 1/2 teaspoons of Sriracha sauce. It still wasn't overly spicy, but then again we really like food with heat.
Rather than mix cooked vegetables into the sauce I decided to serve steamed broccoli on the side along with wild and brown rice. I really liked having the three separate flavors on the plate.

Ingredients:

1 pound Chicken, In Chunks
¼ cup Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1 tsp Minced Garlic (Approximately 1 Large Clove)
1 Tablespoon  Peanut Butter (Heaping Tablespoon Even Better)
½ tsp Curry Powder
1 tsp Sriracha (Optional)

Directions:

Mix ingredients and marinate chicken for 2-3 hours.

Cook chicken in the sauce over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is done. Reduce heat to medium-low and add precooked veggies if desired. Serve topped with sesame seeds.

To thicken sauce if needed: reduce heat to medium-low and add a cornstarch slurry (1 teaspoon cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water).
