Summer Sizzlers: Put an Asian twist on your table with this chicken in spicy peanut sauce recipe

Post Thumbnail

Peanut butter isn’t just for a sandwich, or for making a satay sauce, as this recipe that makes a tasty spicy chicken dish reveals.

When I saw this recipe for chicken sizzling away in a pan in spices and then combined with a spicy peanut sauce I just had to try it out and share it with you.

My only previous experience cooking with peanut butter was in a quick satay sauce and to be honest I wasn’t a fan.

But this recipe from the team at Skippy lets you add a little spice to your life by using their smooth peanut butter with a variety of other ingredients to create a chicken delight with a fantastic Asian twist.

We have lots of recipes in our Summer Sizzlers series. Don’t worry if you have missed any, you can find them all by clicking here.

Serves 4

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 680g)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 265g onions, sliced
  • 260g chunky salsa
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp Skippy® Peanut Butter Extra Smooth (340g jar)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Few coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Rub the chicken breasts all over with cumin and cinnamon. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat; add the chicken and onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is browned.
  2. To make the sauce, in a food processor bowl fitted with a metal blade, process the salsa, lemon juice, peanut butter and garlic until smooth. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture in the frying pan; bring to the boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low; simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  4. Serve the chicken with the sauce and the coriander.
