Chicken and Peanut Curry

IMG_8825Hey there-  I found a new favorite quick-cook dinner!  It’s fast, pretty and who* doesn’t love any dish with peanut butter as an ingredient?!  I think you’d really like it.

CHICKEN AND PEANUT CURRY
2 tab. olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large boneless chicken breast, cut in polite chunks
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 shake red pepper
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1  14oz. can petit cut tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup green onion, the green part chopped
1 cup rice (cooked according to directions on package)

IMG_8821Start the rice cooking.  Heat the oil in a large pan.  Throw in the onion and garlic into the pan and cook until the onions get soft.  Then add in the chicken chunks and cook about 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and brown around the edges.  Stir in the peanut butter.  Then add the curry powder, salt, red pepper, black pepper and tomatoes.  Stir to meld the flavors and let it simmer 3 or 4 minutes.

Spread the cooked rice on a platter and top with the chicken curry.  Garnish with the chopped peanuts and green onion.  Pretty, hot and spicy– yummm.

  1. The hubby does most of the cooking around here but I’ve decided to tackle dinner more often! I made this tonight and it was so easy and really yummy! I did tofu instead of chicken and used brown rice (cause it was what we had in the cupboard). It turned out great – thanks for the easy, yummy recipe!
