Chicken Smothered in Peanut Sauce

I think next time I'd try only one can of tomatoes. We couldn't taste the peanut butter and had a zillion tomato pieces left over. Without rice or barley, each serving has 273 calories, 32 g protein, 17 g carbohydrate, 10 g fat (2 g sat fat), and 5 g fiber

This is so delicious! We only used one-quarter of the amount of chicken it called for because that's all we had, but it was just fine with that amount. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting.

We are making this AGAIN! This is great and everyone should have this recipe (that is not allergic to peanuts). I would suggest to edit the recipe to 1 can of tomatoes. Other than that this is a 5 Star recipe!
