Ingredients

  • Chicken:
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 16 thin strips
  • Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

Preparation

1. Make chicken: Whisk coconut milk, fish sauce, curry, sugar, cilantro, salt and pepper. Put chicken in a large ziplock bag; pour in marinade. Seal bag; rub marinade into chicken. Chill for 3 hours, turning bag occasionally.

2. Make sauce: Combine soy sauce, vinegar, red pepper, sugar, ginger, sesame oil, peanut butter and broth in a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Thin with more chicken broth, if desired. Remove from heat, let cool, cover and chill.
