No - it's not a fish recipe but this chicken does swim! This is another flavourful meal from Thai Cooking & More. I've slightly modified it. NOTE- peanut sauce can be made up to 2 days in advance to help save time
- Ready In:
- 2 (10 ounce) packages fresh spinach
- 1 1⁄4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced crosswise into 1/2 inch wide strips
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
- 1 red chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter

- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- Set steamer basket in a large pot; add water to within 1/4 inch of bottom of basket.
- Bring water to a boil over high heat. Layer about1/4 of the spinach in basket; cover and steam 15 seconds. QUickly turn leaves over with tongs. Cover and steam 15 seconds more (or until leaves are bright green and barely wilted).
- Transfer spinach to colander. Repeat with remaining spinach. Lay spinach on serving platter or individual plates.
- Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add chicken to boiling water; remove saucepan from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

- Peanut Sauce:.
- Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until tender.
