Chili Peanut Coconut Chicken

Chili Peanut Coconut Chicken

This tasty Indonesian-influenced dish comes together in 30 minutes.  The flavors of peanuts, coconut, chili, garlic and ginger beautifully meld to create a sauce that is rich, comforting and deeply satisfying.

We recently had some family over from out of town at the last minute’s notice and I wanted to serve up something for dinner that would be fuss-free and quick.  Just that day I had picked up my order of fresh chicken breasts from Zaycon Fresh I hadn’t packaged and frozen it yet and so I wanted to make something with chicken.
