20-Minute Meal:Thai Chicken with Sesame Peanut Sauce

20-Minute Meal

Ever thought making a  wonderful, delicious meal for your family in 20 minutes was out of your league?  I am going to show you how to make a quick and delicious weeknight meal your whole family will love. There are times where the actually process of making dinner is not something you look forward to.  That’s why creating a meal plan is so important. It’s the perfect back-up plan for those days when you have just about had enough and your family wants dinner like yesterday.

Thai Chicken with Seasame Peanut Sauce


4-6 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (This step can be done on your meal prepping day, chicken frozen and thawed in the refrigerator)

Seasame Peanut Butter Sauce:

Exotic blends of lime, lemongrass and garlic bring out the true traditional flavors of Thai.

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/8 teaspoon seasame oil

4 Tablespoons peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)

4 teaspoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons white venegar

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon Thai Red Curry Rub (available at www.noelskitchen.com)

1 Tablespoon water


In a microwavable bowl, heat chicken, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oils, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, pepper, thai seasoning and water. Add chicken pieces and toss to coat with sauce. Serve on rice or noodles.

Recipe Note: This would be a great meal served on a bed of lettuce greens with green onion and julienne carrots. Sweet Chili Sauce is an optional topping we like to use.
