Thai Peanut Chicken

Sometimes the fridge isn't exactly full and there aren't many options for dinner. Today I had chicken legs/thighs in the freezer and not much in the fridge to go with it, so it was a scrounging in the pantry day. Here's what I came up with and it was delicious, so I thought I'd share.

Thai Peanut Chicken

Chicken pieces (any kind you want)
2 cups Sweet Thai Chili sauce
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (crunchy or natural if you have it, smooth works fine too)
3 Tbsp Lime Juice
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce

Place Chicken in a oven safe dish in a single layer.

Combine chili sauce, peanut butter, lime juice and fish sauce in a microwavable dish. Microwave for 1 minute to melt peanut butter and stir well. Pour over chicken and bake in a 350 F oven for 45 minutes or until the chicken reads 170 F for breasts and 180 F for thighs/legs with a meat thermometer. Serve with rice or pasta. This meal freezes well and could be made in the slow cooker (add all ingredients to slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours).

Easy and delicious chicken.
