Creamy Peanut Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ChrisMc

I found this as "Chinese Peanut Chicken" - the cream makes this an inauthentic Chinese dish, but it tastes great. The sauce is very rich, but very simple to make - it's hard to go wrong with this. Time does not include marinating.

I tried this recipe for our poker night, I think the butter and flour were suppose to be like a rhu(?) however the ratio for a rhu is 1:1 and the 1tbsp of butter is not enough liquid to soak up 1 cup of flour on its own. It was more of a paste than a sauce. I did like the flavor and will try it again with my own adjustments to the recipe.
