Indonesian Peanut Chicken

You really must make this, it is fabulous. The kids even liked it. It was a little too spicy for them to eat too much of it, but they did eat it. Next time, I think I will tame their portions a bit more.

2 lbs chicken tenders
2TBS Vegetable Oil
1 Chopped Onion
2 smashed cloves garlic
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup salam olek (thai chili paste) I would actually cut this a bit next time just for the kids, it was perfect for me.
1 cup chicken broth
chopped cilantro for garnish

Salt and pepper the chicken and cook it in a frying pan

Then take it out, cut it if desired and set aside on a plate

put oil in the pan and fry the onion and garlic

add the peanut butter, salam olek, and chicken broth, simmer until combined.

add cut chicken back to the sauce.

Serve over rice (I used basmati) with cilantro garnish.
