Coconut Almond Chicken

Recipe by chel9360

This is converted from a peanut sauce recipe that was originally meant to be served cold. I thought it was better warm. you can serve this dish with just about any grain. I suggest rice noodles. It tastes rich and hearty. This could also be done with tofu in place of the chicken for vegetarians.

OMG this was DELICIOUS! I actually used peanut butter instead of almond butter because it's what I had. I also added a seeded, chopped fresh chili pepper to the sauce and I left out the fish sauce, too, but otherwise I followed the instructions. It was KILLER! My boyfriend raved and raved! Since going GF and DF, I've been exploring new recipes and this one is totally a keeper! Wide (pad thai) style rice noodles were perfect.
