Easy Thai Peanut Chicken

Unlock the secret to Thai flavor.


Thai food isn’t quite like anything else. It has curries like Indian food and noodle dishes like Chinese food, but it doesn’t really taste like either one. It has its own unique flavor, with combinations of ingredients you won’t see in any other cuisine.’

One of those unique taste combos is peanut and coconut milk. That’s the secret to the magical sauce in this Thai Peanut Chicken. Oh, it’s got other ingredients, of course – soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger – and they all add to the flavor. But it’s that blend of peanut butter and coconut milk that really makes it distinctly Thai.

In addition to being remarkably flavorful, this recipe is super quick to make. It takes all of ten minutes to stir-fry the veggies and cubed chicken in a pan, and only another minute or two to whisk together the sauce and toss everything together. You can have the whole dish ready in less time than it takes to make a pot of rice to go with it. It’s perfect for those busy evenings when you get home late and have all of half an hour to get supper on the table.


Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken and vegetables about 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink.

In a small bowl whisk together remaining ingredients until smooth.

Pour peanut butter sauce over chicken and vegetables. Stir until everything is evenly coated in sauce.

Serve over rice. Garnish with cilantro and chopped peanuts.

Don’t forget to pack up any leftovers for lunch!
