Easy Thai-style Chicken

I was craving something besides the run-of-the-mill baked chicken tonight, and I must have had peanut butter on the brain....I scoured the 'net for ideas, and found a couple of basic recipes for chicken with a spicy peanut sauce - but all of them required stuff I didn't have handy. I ended up whipping up this recipe - the veggies and spices are all pretty flexible, and can be adjusted based on what you have in the pantry. The basic flavor mix I was going for is spicy, sweet, savory, and peanutty - so go to town!

Easy Thai-style Chicken


1 Tbsp vegetable oil

2 Tbsp minced garlic (or to taste)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
2 split chicken breasts - skinned and deboned, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup water
1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
2 zucchini or green squash, quartered lengthwise and cut into bite size pieces
Prepared couscous, rice or noodles (whatever is handy)

In a large skillet, heat oil. Add garlic, cook just until it browns. Add chicken pieces, sprinkle with chili powder and cumin, cook thoroughly - appx 5-7 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix peanut butter, water, soy sauce, sugar and ginger. Add zucchini to pan, cook 2 minutes until just tender. Add peanut sauce, cook until sauce is smooth, appx 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve over hot couscous, noodles or rice.
