PEANUT BUTTER CHICKEN WITH MANDARIN CASHEW SALAD:
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes
3 Tablespoons peanut butter,
(I used crunchy)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 cups bite-size Romaine lettuce
(I used lettuce)
1 red pepper, julienned
3 green onions, or onions, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, minced
( i used parsley)
1/3 cup chopped cashews
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
In a small glass bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, olive oil, garlic powder, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Microwave on High 1 minute.
Place chicken in baking dish and pour peanut butter sauce over. Bake at 350 degrees
3. In a large bowl, place lettuce, red pepper, onions, add chicken and toss to mix well. Pour Dressing over mixture and toss gently to coat. Garnish with cashews and mandarin oranges.
Makes 4 servings.
Whisk together 1/2 cup italian salad dressing, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1 Tabelspoon soy sauce and 1 teaspoon garlic powder.
I did NOT use cilantro, i don't really care for it, i replaced it with parsley.
Next time, I will stir fry the chicken, that is faster. I used crunchy peanut butter, my all time favorite.
