"An invention of mine to make use of some leftover chicken breasts. Its ingredients mainly belong to the Far-Eastern cuisine, but it also has a slight Latin twist and a Lebanese hint! ENJOY"

  1. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and salt. Cook and stir 1 minute, then stir in the pine nuts, and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Add the diced chicken breast, and cook a few minutes to reheat. Stir in the peanut butter, soy sauce, and jalapeno pepper until the peanut butter has melted. Pour in the water, and bring to a simmer. Cook and stir until the sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes more.

Nice mix of ingredients. Tasty. I used fresh jalapeño also. Pickled? It really helps to have most of the ingredients...though I'm all for tweeking them. Pine Nuts are good to have in your freeze...

This was great! I didn't have pine nuts so I just left out that part. Being as I LOVE peanut butter, I double or even tripled that. I served with rice and it was amazing!!!!

I'd give it 6 stars if I could! Love this recipe. I used a whole fresh jalapeño, diced, and sautéed it with the garlic and chicken. Instead of using water, I used low-fat milk. Made for a very c...

I doubled the recipe to use some as a marinade (I grilled the chicken on skewers) and some as a dip. I used 1/4 cup total of the pine nuts, instead of the half cup for a double recipe, crushing ...

Saw this while browsing for peanut butter sauces. Simple and quick. Using what i had on hand, I switched the pine nuts for cashews. Simmered peppercorn with garlic. Added green onions, mint leav...

Pretty good! I made it with tofu instead of chicken. The peanut/pine nut/tofu flavors go nicely together. Instead of the pickled pepper, I subbed fresh chopped jalapeno and pickled ginger. T...

Did not have pine nuts or sesame oil so used olive oil. Great recipe will make again just will try noodles!
