Peanut Chicken With Jasmine Rice

Total Time

This is a dish you will probably need to play around with as everyone has different tastes for peanut chicken, I suggest you start with the ingredient amounts stated in this recipe and mabey adjust slightly to taste, you will know after you make this dish a few times how you prefer it. You also might want to add in a tablespoon or two of fresh cilantro. Adjust the cayenne to desired heat level that you like. I would suggest to prepare the peanut sauce before you start cooking the chicken thighs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat peanut oil in a wok over medium heat.
  2. Add in the chicken thighs; cook tossing with a wooden spoon until thoroughly cooked through.
  3. Add in red bell pepper and continue to cook until crisp-tender (about 2 minutes).

Delicious and a great easy weekday meal! I love the peanut sauce for this recipe, I use the higher amounts of cayenne and peanut butter. Thanks for posting!

This was fantastic!! Very aromatic and absolutely delicious. I used chicken breasts and a green bell pepper because that was what I had on hand (Kitten I know you said not to, but it was still well received in my house.) This is definitely a restaurant quality peanut chicken recipe.
