Chicken With Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This is a perfect dinner when cooking for two. It is very attractive and served on the bed of shredded Napa cabbage is a complete meal.

My husband and I both thought this was ok. I did not have any cabbage, so I served it over a bed of rice. Also, I cut my chicken into thin peices. I have to say it was a bit too much peanut-buttery for me, but my husband did not have a problem with the peanut butter taste. I did add some cayenne pepper & some soy sauce to the peanut butter sauce to give it a little more taste.Thanks for posting.
