Chicken in Groundnut Sauce

After making the groundnut sauce, I figured it would be ideal if I paired it with chicken. Since the sauce is so rich, I just sauteed the chicken in very little oil  and seasoned with salt and black pepper. The sauce is the star of the meal and I did not want anything else stealing its spotlight.

In a wok add very little oil,  heat it up and add the chicken. I used boneless chicken breasts.

Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.



Saute the chicken. First it will turn white and then start to lightly brown. The idea is to cook the chicken completely then add in the groundnut sauce.




Add your prepared groundnut sauce.

Stir and allow the sauce to come to a gentle boil.


Once heated, turn off the heat and sprinkle over some chopped dhania and stir.


Serve and enjoy.
