This recipe is adapted from the November 2010 of Cooking Light. I like to serve it with steamed broccoli for some added greens.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 4 servings
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (use sunflower seed butter for peanut-free)
  • 2 tablespoons light or white miso (use soy-free, if needed)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 8 chicken thighs, bone in, with skin
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 2 small to medium bell peppers (orange, red, or yellow), diced
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups cooked brown or white rice, to serve
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, miso, honey, curry paste, garlic, and water until smooth.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet, and cook until golden brown (about 4 minutes per side). Transfer the chicken to a plate, and drain most of the fat from the skillet, leaving 2 tablespoons in the pan.
  3. Place the skillet back over medium-high heat, add the peppers and onions, and cook until the onions are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the white wine, return the chicken to the skillet, and pour the peanut-miso sauce over all. Simmer the chicken, partially covered, for about 20 minutes. If the sauce becomes too thick, you can add a little more water. During the last minute of cooking, add in the green onions.
  5. Plate the chicken with rice, and spoon any remaining peanut sauce, onions, and peppers over top.
