Peanutty Braised Chicken

Peanutty Braised Chicken

Peanutty Braised Chicken

Peanut butter gives this dish exotic flavor and creates a velvety sauce when combined with tomatoes. It is served over rice and pile on the toppings: green onions, cilantro and lots of crunchy peanuts. Chicken is always a favorite at my house. Chicken in itself has a rather bland taste,it is very easy to adjust seasonings according to your own preferences after you have made a dish.

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/2 cups chicken broth, warmed

2 lbs. skinned and boned chicken breasts, cut into pieces

1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt, divided

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 red or yellow pepper, chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 ( 14 .5 -oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
