Directions

  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.

Very yummy, followed the recipe except that I used fresh jalapeño and it was the perfect amount of spice. Served it with rice and edimame.

I thought this sounded so good that I made it tonight, even though I didn't have some ingredients. It was great!! I didn't have sesame oil so used olive oil, and didn't have the pine nuts (which sounds yummy) but I followed the rest of the recipe. I did serve it with noodles and we loved it!

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 freezer, a bag goes a long way unless you're making pesto. Toast them, roast them...or use them raw, they are a nice texture and taste component. Sesame oil is even more critical for its specific taste...toasted Seasame would work too. It's so flavorful. Keep in mind it has a low smoke point, so don't over heat it. Not to mention using reduced fat PB and low salt Soy Sauce. A touch of Sriracha is another option. I would want more protein than listed, so I upped that a bit. Thighs would be good too. Also, I like a lot more PB than listed...even if I need to increase the other sauce ingredients.

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!!!!
