Indonesian Peanut Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by breezermom

Yummy grilled chicken served with peanut sauce. The recipe calls for chicken breasts, but I really prefer to use boneless chicken thighs. Prep time does not include marinating time.

My wife is downstairs saying 'wom, wow, wow'. She LOVES this dish. I liked it too. The peanut sauce seemed runny to me, but after refrigeration it was great! 5 stars! My wife said that this is exactly what she thinks of when she thinks of peanut suace. High praise indeed!
