Thai honey peanut chicken

I found this recipe about a year ago through tasty kitchen–the Pioneer Woman’s version of
We make it about twice a month to relatively high success when it comes to how the kids eat it. In the beginning, I made it just to see if the boys would scarf down as much as they had the previous time. I couldn’t get enough of seeing my 3 year old boys eating a peanut curry

Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

1lb chicken, in chunks
1/4 cups soy sauce
2T honey
1T like juice. (I’ve substituted lemon to no ill effects)
1t minced garlic
1T or slightly more natural peanut butter
1/2t curry powder
1t Sriracha–optional

Mix ingredients in the pot you plan on using to cook it in. Let marinate for at least 1 hour and as many as 3 hours

Cook chicken in the sauce over medium high heat for 7-8 minutes or until cooked through

If you want to thicken the sauce, make a mixture of 1t cornstarch and 1T water. Stir that into the chicken and let cook for a minute

Can substitute chicken for tofu, replace peanut butter with tahini or another nut butter. If using regular peanut butter, just reduce the honey by 1T

I serve with peas or broccoli and rice. Enjoy!
