Peanut Butter Marinade for Chicken

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Rita D.

This marinade adds a wonderful flavor to chicken, whether grilled or cooked in a skillet on top of the stove. I received the recipe from my sister who always cooks chicken thighs using this marinade.

This is one of the best chicken marinades that I have ever made. The peanut butter and soy sauce do not dominate the flavors as so many do but just add a great little touch. I can't describe the flavors as it is so unique to me but is just absolutely wonderful. Hope someone else can explain it better than I can. I did microwave the peanut butter for about 30 seconds to help incorporate with the other ingredients more easily. Other than that I made as directed. I way overcooked my 4 chicken thigh pieces but it still turned out so moist and juicy. I apologize for the photo but didn't like the photos of the marinade. Thanks so much for sharing.
