Peanut Ginger Chicken

4 Feb

Today’s recipe comes from  Jaylene on

Any chicken that’s made with peanut butter is at least enough to interest me.  Add in ginger and you’ve sold me. My kitchen partner and I made this chicken and turned it into a very hearty meal through the power of rice and broccoli. We’ve made a bunch of dishes since, but he still swears that this is hands down the best thing we’ve ever made. While I’m not so ready to give it the gold, it’s certainly in the competition for it.

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • White pepper
  • Black pepper
  • Parsley flakes or fresh parsley


  1. In a bowl, prepare the peanut butter sauce. Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and olive oil together to get a nice paste.
  2. In the pan, heat up some olive oil and fry the chicken with the ginger and garlic. Continue until the garlic is cooked.
  3. Add the sauce to the chicken and stir it around until the chicken is completely coated.
  4. Cover and cook on low heat for five minutes. You can add water to thin the sauce to your preference. You can also add salt and pepper to your liking.

Serve this chicken on a bed of rice, as the sauce goes great with the rice as well. It’s a thick sauce and it may seem a little unusual, but the tastes go great together. The brown sugar really helps balance out the saltiness of the soy sauce, and when the peanut butter melts it creates a nice glaze texture that just smothers your chicken in deliciousness. It definitely has an Asian taste to it, but regardless of your tastes, you should give this recipe a shot.
