This is the recipe my family have used for years. The flavour is always great. I also add a pinch of Cardoman and a dash of Tabasco Sauce I sometimes make it only as the sauce (without the chicken) and use it with other cooked meats.

I didn't make this in the microwave, and I changed the quantities on a few ingredients - but I have to give high marks for the incredibly delicious flavor combo! I sprinkled my pieces of pounded chicken breast with salt and pepper, sauteed in butter and olive oil with the onions and garlic. Removed to platter. Stirred in 3/4 c. chicken broth, 3 T. peanut butter, 2 T. honey, 2 tsp. Dijon mustard and 1/2 tsp. curry powder. Stirred until nicely thick, returned chicken to pan and simmered about 10 more minutes. Served on a platter garnished with scallions and fresh parsley, and crushed peanuts. Passed rice to go with. Everyone devoured this and I couldn't have done it without this great recipe! Thank you!
