Put peanut sauce on something, and I’ll eat it.
But seriously, a good peanut sauce makes even the simplest meal more satisfying and crave-worthy. The key phrase is “a good peanut sauce” as let me tell you: there are a lot of not so good recipes out there.
Now I know traditionalists will look at this peanut sauce and scoff that it doesn’t contain fish sauce. But I didn’t promise a traditional peanut sauce, just a finger-licking-good one.
After trying countless recipes here’s what I’ve learned are the keys to a balanced peanut sauce recipe:
These Thai chicken peanut bowls may look involved, but I promise it goes fast and is well worth the effort.
Plus, the longest part is boiling the rice, which took me 45 min. However, you could easily cut down the cooking time by using a grain like farro or quinoa that cook in 15-25 minutes.
If in a pinch, you can also use microwavable bags of brown rice.
These bowls also work well for meal prep as they save and re-heat well.
Plus, if you don’t want to be eating the same thing three or four days in a row, simply omit the soy sauce in the veggies and make just a solid base of rice, chicken and vegetables.
