1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp brown sugar

4 chicken breasts, sliced into 1 inch strips


1 tbsp oil or ghee

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed

The remainder of the can of coconut milk used for the marinade

Remove the chicken from the bowl and arrange the strips evenly on a large parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35 - 45 minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

While the chicken is baking in the oven, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and fry on medium low heat until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and fresh ginger and cook for an addition 2 minutes being careful not to burn the garlic.

Add the remainder of the ingredients except for the lime juice and the vegetables and blend well.

Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven and add to the sauce. Add lime juice and blend well.

Add the vegetables stirring to coat the vegetables evenly, cover and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the vegetables are cooked to your liking.

Place a serving of rice on a plate and top with the peanut curried chicken.
