Prep 2 hrs
Cook 45 mins
"Tourist Thai", but very tasty - and not a skewer in sight! The prep time includes the minutes the chicken has spent swimming in the marinade. I found this in a 1980's Harrowsmith Cookbook, and do it on occasion with chicken breasts.
- 1 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup soya sauce
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 teaspoon coriander
- 1 chicken, cut up
- In a food processor, blend all ingredients, except chicken, until smooth.
- Marinate chicken pieces in the mixture for at least 2 hours-- I usually cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
- Uncover and bake at 350*F for 30 to 45 minutes, basting every now and then.
- Serves 4.
The flavor is amazing.
For this recipe I chose to add pinapple instaed of lemon and cook this on top of the stove.
All you need is steamed vege's, rice and you have a perfect meal on a week night in no time at all.
This recipe turns out to be a family favorite of ours.
Will try to make this in the stove the next time.
Thanks for posting.
This was really yummy! I only had time to marinate the chicken for about 1/2 hour. I baked the chicken in the marinade, but I kept it covered so the sauce wouldn't burn to my pan. It was served over rice for a great meal.
I cut up skinless, boneless chicken breasts, used lime juice instead of lemon, used curry powder instead of cayenne and served it over white rice with peanut sauce. It went over very well. Two of my friends even had seconds. The only leftovers were some peanut sauce. I will be making this again.
