The Preparation

  • 6 medium boneless, skinless chicken thighs (~25 oz.)
  • 6 tbsp. peanut butter, smooth (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. chili paste
  • 1/4 tsp. coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

The Execution

  1. Add all of the ingredients (except for the chicken) to a container and immersion blend.
  2. Cube chicken thighs and season and salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a dry pan over high heat. Once it’s very hot, add chicken and saute for about a minute.
  4. Drain the excess moisture with a paper towel and set aside.
  5. Continue cooking the chicken until the chicken is browned well. Continue draining excess moisture throughout the cooking process, but don’t be overly aggressive. It won’t take too long.
  6. Once the chicken is browned and cooked through, remove from the heat. Pour peanut sauce over the chicken and stir well.
