  • 3 tbsp olive oil OR garlic infused oil

  • 3 tbsp peanut butter

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium–high heat.
  • Toss in the chicken and cook for 2–3 minutes, or until golden brown, turning often to ensure even color.
  • Cover the chicken with water and let it cook over medium-low heat for approx. 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the coconut milk and peanut butter until well blended.
  • Add the preparation to the chicken and cook for about 20 minutes.
  • Give everything a good stir and salt to taste.
  • Remove from the heat and serve with your favourite rice. I suggest jasmine.
