This is a delicious chicken recipe that pleases my whole family. At 1.5 grams carb per serving it goes well with a carb controlled diet, but those not on carb control love it too. I serve this with a crisp salad and white wine. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do! Adapted from quick and easy Low Carb by Amanda Cross. Prep time does not include marinating overnight. Added June 22 05: Please be sure to use a low sodium soy sauce to avoid saltiness.
- 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup lime juice
- 2 -3 tablespoons curry powder, to taste
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (optional)
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
- In a large mixing bowl combine peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, curry powder, garlic and hot pepper sauce.
- Place the chicken in the marinade and leave to marinate for about 12 hours, or overnight in the fridge.
- When ready to cook, preheat broiler or grill to high.
- Put the chicken on skewers and cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
- Serve immediately.
- Can be served as a meal or an appetizer for a larger group.
My family loved this! I think I might divide the sauce and use half to marinade chicken and the other half to pour over as a stir fry! Very good sauce and versatile!
GREAT combination of ingredients, TRUE! LOVE is low carb AND PEANUT BUTTER TOO!!! Recently had massive crave for this! DO NOT, repeat..do NOT give this recipe a miss! Here's a helpful hint by me, TRUE! Grilled it on George Forman grill and used oil spary EACH time too! Used chicken tenderloins cut in half, worked for me! This IS a TERRIFIC recipe! NOTE: Used tamari to cut down the salt
Wow, I made this for my family last night with the intent of having some left over for work today - but none of the chicken made it off of the kitchen table. Very delicious recipe with the combination of peanut butter and curry. I did use low sodium soy and only half of the lime, but the chicken was so tender!!! Thank you!
