Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are my favorite form of protein (other than peanut butter, of course!) But the problem is that things can often get boring with chicken breast. The Heat is On peanut butter instantly jazzes things up in this quick and easy chicken dish. I’ve made this chicken countless times and my favorite way to serve it is with steamed broccoli and rice.

The marinade will be very thick and when cooking, it creates a delicious crispy crust. If you’re serving this to young children, you might want to do half The Heat is On and half Smooth Operator peanut butter to cut the intensity.

2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using non-stick, there’s no need to add any oil to the pan. If not using a non-stick pan, add about a tablespoon of canola oil to the pan. Place the chicken strips in the pan, keeping a little room between each piece. Fry the chicken for about 3–5 minutes and then flip and cook for another 2–4 minutes.

    I accidentally ruined it. The instructions say 1/4 cup of soy sauce. I put 1/2 cup. I didn’t realize my mistake until I ate it. It tasted more like salty soy sauce than peanut butter.
    🙁

    Fail. I was again regretting hollowing a recipe when all my instincts are to read it and then follow my own judgment as to proportions.Got the ingredients mostly right but proportions terrible. Halve the soy sauce, add a tablespoon of sugar, up the water an eighth of a cup and add two more tablespoons of peanut butter. I doubled the ginger and garlic but that’s just for my taste.I do not know how it would taste using low salt soy as I always use plain ingredients and adjust the amounts and additions. I think it’s useless to buy some special ingredient you might only use once when you already have the main ingredient and just need to add a spice or something equally simple.
