Chicken in Peanut Sauce
Quick stir-fried chicken—and an easy peanut sauce made in a blender—make this spicy Asian-style chicken dish a breeze to prepare. Serve with hot cooked jasmine rice.
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup roasted peanuts
3 MAGGI Garlic Flavor Seasoning Cubes
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken pieces, cut into 2 x 1/4-inch pieces
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped peanuts for garnish
Cilantro leaves for garnish
Hot, cooked rice for accompaniment
- Place water, 1 cup peanuts, seasoning cubes, vinegar, hot pepper sauce and sugar in blender; cover. Blend until smooth; set aside.
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes or until golden. Add peanut sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, until it reaches a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened slightly. Top with crushed peanuts and cilantro; serve with rice.
