This is a family recipe of a former roommate of mine. She was a little cooking-challenged, so she had her Mom teach me all her favorite recipes so I could fix them for her! I used to make this every year for her birthday.
- 4 -6 skinless chicken breasts (with bone)
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1 garlic clove
- 1⁄4 teaspoon coriander
- 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 3⁄4 cups chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Melt butter and oil together. Brown chicken breasts, remove, and keep warm.
- Saute onion, pepper and garlic for 5 minutes.
- Add ginger, coriander, and cayenne and black pepper.
- Add brown sugar, tomato paste, and chicken broth.
- Return breasts to skillet, cover, and simmer for 30 minute.
- Remove chicken, boil sauce down for about 5 minutes.
- Puree mixture in blender (1/2 at a time), then return to pan.
- Add peanut butter to melt, mix well.
- Reheat chicken breasts and serve over rice.
I thought this was very tasty. I added the coriander and cayenne pepper (actually I used red chili powder) very liberally, as we like things highly spiced. Yummy!
The sauce had such an odd flavor to it, perhaps too much peanut butter?
very nice sauce! will make again. will try adding slightly more peanut butter/slightly less tomato paste and no sugar next time to suite my craving better. My son enjoyed it very much as well. thank you for sharing this delicious recipe...
