Would you post "your" Peanut sauce recipe please. Marilee is especially fond of it and her favorite brand is no longer sold here.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

Ooooh, yes please. I love peanut sauce too. While I liked the last one - what was that with? Oh, not the chicken wraps - haven't made that yet - but the asian chicken with peanut sauce and noodles. It was very tasty - but always on the lookout for a great one!

Even thought I'm new to this, I found the peanut sauce with the wraps VERY good and hubby pretty much finished it up with a spoon. If you've got something better, I need it!

Pretty please...

Daphne,

Peanut sauces vary quite a bit. Although I, too, enjoyed the sauce for the wraps, the sauce in the following recipe is simpler, and has a completely different character. I love it, have made it for years, and will throw it together at the drop of a hat. In fact, I think I just saw someone drop a hat.

Szechuan Chicken Ana

  • 1 1/2 Lbs Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
To cook chicken:
  • 2 Cups Water

  • 1/2 Tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
Sauce:
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Dried cilantro (or us 2 Tbsp fresh)
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Cayenne pepper (more if you like it hotter)
  • 2 Tsp White vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp Sesame oil
  • 1 Green onion, finely chopped

Instructions:
For chicken:
  1. Cut each chicken breast into thirds.
  2. Put chicken and the "to cook chicken" ingredients in a 3 quart saucepan.
  3. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat.

Well, really, I lied... I have two that are my favorites and I just go back and forth between them.


Lamb Chops with Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

2 large garlic cloves
1/3 cup cilantro leaves
1/3 cup unsalted natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon Thai green curry paste
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
Eight 1-inch-thick loin lamb chops (about 2 pounds)

1. In a food processor, pulse the garlic and cilantro until finely chopped. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the lamb; pulse until a paste forms. Spread 1/4 cup of the paste over the lamb chops.

2. In a saucepan, whisk remaining paste with 1/3 cup of water. Warm the sauce over low heat; it should be pourable.

3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Grill the chops over a medium-high fire for 4 minutes per side, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a chop registers 125° to 130° for medium rare. Transfer the chops to a platter. Spoon some warm peanut sauce over the lamb chops and serve, passing the extra sauce on the side.

Thanks Jean - will have to try both! They look different one with curry one with coconut milk - but both look great.

Oh my these peanut recipes look and sound wonderful. I used to be in love with a peanut spinach curry from the Thai place down the street. Unfortunately we are a peanut free zone in this house due to severe allergies. I will have to try them with the Sunflower butter we use. It's pretty good, but I haven't experimented with recipes yet. Just the straight PB&J sandwiches. I think this has inspired me. We really miss the peanut thing.

Yummy! Thanks you two. We'll experiment with all three. I have a good Satay, so I'll have to compare. Mine's made with a ponzu sauce.
