I wanted to change things up for dinner last night. I wanted to try something new, but couldn't find a recipe that suited my needs... so I took parts and pieces from several recipes and created something new! (Well, something new for me, anyways!)
Stinky helped. It was definitely an experiment. Everyone enjoyed their dinner though, and with a few tweaks (like waiting to add vegies until later) I think this will make it into our standard rotation.
Please note that measurements are approximate. I cook everything to taste, not to math. :)
"Nuttin Honey" Chicken
3 c. boiling water
1/3 c. soy sauce
1 T. honey
2 t. ginger
1 c. creamy peanut butter
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T. olive oil
2 t. rosemary
2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 c. chopped peanuts
1/2 yellow onion
salt & pepper
In a medium bowl, whisk together water, soy sauce, honey and ginger; gradually stir in peanut butter.
Cut potatoes (I used Yukon Gold variety) and onion into 1-2 inch chunks. Cut baby carrots in half.
Cut chicken into 1-2 inch chunks. Brown in olive oil over medium-high heat. Season browned chicken with rosemary, red pepper, salt & pepper.
Pour peanut butter mixture over chicken and add onion. Cover and lower heat to simmer.
In a covered dish, microwave potatoes and 1/4 c. water for 6 minutes. Drain the potatoes immediately. After chicken has simmered for about 20 minutes, add potatoes, carrots and chopped peanuts. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes (depending on how "done" you want the vegies).
Serve over rice or noodles.
