We LOVE this easy Thai Peanut sauce recipe, especially when served over chicken and veggies. The sauce is so good, you might just want to eat it by the spoonful!

Several weeks before Jack was born, my mom sent me an email with a bunch of different ideas of meals she could make while she stayed with us (she was quite the saint – stayed with me for almost two weeks! I’m not sure how I would have survived otherwise!) She sent a list of lots of yummy recipes – many of which I grew up loving. Forrest and I looked through the list, and it was so hard to pick what sounded best. One of the recipes we chose was a thai peanut sauce recipe with chicken and veggies, and it has been one of our favorites ever since. This thai peanut chicken recipe is one of those recipes that Forrest and I often forget that we love, until we make it. Then we ask ourselves why we don’t make it more often. The sauce is SO creamy, and the flavor is fabulous. When it’s combined with sautéed vegetables and chicken, there’s nothing quite like it. It is a rather simple recipe and chances are, you have all the ingredients in your pantry already! Those are my favorite types of recipes – the ones that you can usually make when you are running out of grocery budget for the month and you are hoping to use ingredients you already have – and it still tastes delicious! Whenever my mom makes this, she usually serves it with linguini, which is delicious. However, we like it just as well with rice (especially since we bought our rice cooker – which is arguably my favorite kitchen tool.) Either way, it’s pretty tasty. I always top mine with a little bit of parmesan cheese, but Forrest thinks that’s weird. I think it’s tasty!
