Chicken is one of the most versatile meats because it can be added to just about any type of sauce, pasta, sandwich, rice, side dish or main dish. This Peanut Chicken with Avocado Sauce will tantalize the taste buds and become a favorite for years to come. It is not only savory with the richness of the avocado and peanuts, it also is tart with lime juice, as well as spicy with the chili flakes.

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (medium, pounded thin)
  • 1/3 cup peanuts (ground)
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion (medium, cut into half moons)
  • 3 cups lettuce
  • 1/2 avocado (ripe)
  • 2 tablespoons onion (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon chile flakes (may substitute cayenne)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 2 limes
  • water (if needed)

Directions

  1. Place the ground peanuts onto a dish and add salt and pepper. Coat the chicken with the peanut mixture.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Add the chicken and cook on medium-high heat until cooked on both sides.
  3. Saute the onion in a separate skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of salt until lightly golden.
  4. Prepare the avocado sauce by mashing together the avocado, onion, chile flakes, olive oil, and lime juice and rind. Add water if necessary.
  5. Place the chicken over the lettuce and onions on a serving dish. Drizzle with avocado sauce and serve the remaining on the side.

I have made quite a few peanut chicken recipes in my lifetime and this one has to be the best. The combination of flavors from the chicken and the rich avocado sauce was absolutely divine. I could see this recipe served in restaurants it tastes so good. I true 5 star winner that will be at my dinner table again soon.
