Chicken in Peanut Sauce Bowl


We love a good Asian dish in our household from fried rice to lettuce wraps and so on. This dish was perfect for a weeknight meal or for anytime for that matter. It’s a Chicken in peanut sauce bowl topped with the perfect toppings. This chicken in peanut sauce is also great to use for a lettuce wrap or if you want to get crazy put it in a taco. 

This sauce is the perfect creamy consistency for a rice bowl. I used the Elmhurst Peanut Milk. This milk worked out so well I didn’t even need to add peanut butter. My kids loved this dish so I guess I can say it’s kid approved. 


1 red pepper, julienned 

1 lb chicken breast, cut into cubes 

Salt & pepper, to taste 

1 large garlic clove, minced 

2 tablespoons peanut oil 

Zest of 1 lime


On a medium skillet on medium to high heat add oil and chicken. Cook chicken for 8 to 10 minutes until golden. Next add garlic and peppers. Cook for an additional 4-5 minutes. Add zest and set aside. 

Sauce ingredients: 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons flour 

2 cups Elmhurst Peanut milk, warmed through (this prevents lumps from forming in the sauce) 

Salt & pepper, to taste 


In a small pot on medium to high heat melt  the butter. Next add flour and cook for about 1 minute or so. Finally whisk in the peanut milk. Whisk for about 3 to 4 minutes until sauce thickens. Pour over chicken and peppers. 

Serve with rice and add desired toppings. I added crushed peanuts, cilantro and green onions. Enjoy!
