Indonesian Peanut Chicken

I love peanut butter. When I was in college, the cafeteria served an amazing vegetarian dish with peanut butter sauce, and I adored it. We also have a glut of veggies, thanks to our CSA, but not a lot in the pantry. Wanting to use up some of the green beans in my fridge, but not having any cheese to make my favorite green bean casserole, I went to AllRecipes.com and did an ingredient search. I told the search tool to find me a recipe with green beans and chicken, but without cheese. The recipe below is based on the one that I found in my search. This recipe turned out to be very inexpensive, and it helped us to clear out some things that have been sitting around.

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet, and cook the chicken 5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. Add in the onions, garlic, and green beans.
  3. Whisk together the chicken broth, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, chile pepper, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour over the chicken and veggies. Cook and stir 10 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  4. We mixed our noodles in, but you could also just serve it over top of the noodles.
  5. Optionally, you can garnish with green onions and peanuts.

  This was so delicious that I ate it for breakfast this morning, too. It makes a lot, so I'll probably have it for lunch today, too. And maybe breakfast tomorrow.

  3. I have to admit I’ve never tasted anything with a peanut type sauce on it. I’m not a huge fan of peanut butter – but hubby and son are. It always sounds like such an odd combo to me but I know so many folks love it. I will be brave and try something with peanut sauce sometime.
