can you recommend any spicy stir-fry sauce for chicken that involves me using peanut butter and chili?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Now understand that being a White male I am the last person to ask for Authentic Asian cuisine being that my background is french cuisine but for my family I make a simple spicy peanut sauce that is somewhat of a thai influance. Heres the sauce:
6 Tblsp of peanut butter ( I like crunchy)
1 Fresh thai red chili pepper seeded and chopped
juice of 1 lime'
4 tblsp of coconut milk
a little salt to taste.
I often make a simple classic peanut dressing, that is essentially just equal parts peanut butter and rice wine vinegar. Its excellent as a salad dressing, on fish and chicken, lettuce wraps, or with noodles. The possibilities are endless!
Of course you'll want to flavor it up with any of: chilies, lemon grass, sesame oil, miso, tahini, garlic, spring onion, soy sauce, chili oil, curry powder, etc. Whatever you have on hand :) You can also substitute some/all the rice wine vinegar for other acidic ingredients like lemon/lime juice or apple cider vinegar and sugar.
Now I want to make this tonight!
a completely inauthentic but easy recipe:
just add a hit of sriracha or chili garlic sauce at the end.
