Recipe by Kevin Young
READY IN: 40mins




  • In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions, scallions, and garlic and cook until onion is tender (about 5 minutes).
  • Reduce heat to medium and add peanut butter, brown sugar, fish sauce, paprika, juice of limes, and cayenne pepper.
  • Stir into a smooth sauce, then add coconut milk in 4 parts, stirring into a smooth sauce again.
  • Heat sauce to boiling, then reduce heat to low and allow to simmer stirring occasionally.
  • In a large pot, heat enough water to completely submerge chicken to boiling.
  • While water is heating, trim chicken of fat and slice into 1/2 inch wide by 2 inch long pieces.
  • Add chicken to boiling water and allow to cook just long enough to completely cook chicken (should be no more than 10 minutes).
  • Remove chicken from water and add to peanut sauce, also adding steamed spinach and bell pepper.
  • Mix thoroughly, and increase heat to medium.
  • Allow this to cook 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and ladle over plenty of white rice.
