One of my favorite condiments is peanut sauce, or what I like to call saute sauce. When we lived in Holland that’s what it was called. My mom would make chicken strips or skewers and we’d dip our chicken in that warm peanuty sauce. Anytime I eat Thai food I have to order peanut sauce. I’m slightly obsessed.
Peanut sauce isn’t loved by everyone in my house though. Since it’s me and the husband by logical deduction that means he’s the one that doesn’t like it. I don’t force him to eat it anymore, but I did find a way to enjoy the peanut and chicken flavor profile last night.
makes 4 servings
2 large chicken breasts (about 1.5 lb), sliced into strips
3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 tsp garlic powders
1/4 tsp chili powder, pepper and sea salt
1/8 cup milk of choice
1/4 cup peanut flour
Olive oil spray
You could easily make this an almond chicken by substituting in almond meal for the peanut flour and whole almonds for the dry roasted peanuts.
Change up the size of strips. Make little nuggets or large pieces – whatever works for you!
