Gnarly Peanut Chicken
Serves 2 people (can easily double the recipe)
Ready in 15 minutes
Recipe Adapted from 5 Ingredients Quick & Easy Food by Jamie Oliver
4 cloves of garlic
2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
1-2 fresh red chilies (or 1/4 tsp dried chili flakes)
- Turn the broiler on to medium high. Score the chicken breasts in a criss-cross fashion, rub with 1 Tbsp of olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, and the finely grated zest of 1 lime. Place criss-cross side down in a cold, oven proof frying pan and put it on medium high heat while you peel and finely grate the garlic into a bowl.
- Squeeze in the juice from 1 1/2 limes, stir in the peanut butter and loosen with enough water to give you a spoonable consistency. Finely slice the chilis (or add dried chili flakes to taste), then mix through the sauce, taste and season to perfection.
- Flip the chicken over, spoon over the sauce and transfer to the broiler, roughly 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes, or until gnarly and cooked through. Finely grate over the remaining lime zest, then drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
