Baked Peanut Chicken Recipe: This Crispy Thai Chicken Recipe Is Full of Asian Flavors by 30Seconds Food
Baked chicken is a popular dinner in many homes. Chicken is an ingredient most people enjoy, it's versatile, easy to prepare and bakes up quickly. All cultures have some type of chicken dish. In Jamaica they have jerk chicken, in Germany they enjoy Hähnchenkeulen, in China it is five-spice chicken and in Peru they love pollo a la brasa. This chicken baked in a peanut sauce is one you may not have heard of that's enjoyed in Thailand.
This baked Thai peanut chicken is made with bone-in chicken pieces, though some recipes do use boneless chicken. The chicken sits in a pool of peanut sauce as it bakes. The creamy peanut sauce is made with coconut milk, creamy peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. The chicken is cooked without being coated in the sauce so the skin crisps up. Start basting at the end of cooking time to get the flavor of the sauce onto the chicken. So easy!
Serve this Thai baked chicken with rice, quinoa or potatoes and a fresh vegetable. Try sautéed bok choy, garlic and lemon sugar snap peas or sweet soy broccolini on the side.
