Spicy Thai Chicken

Contributed by: Chris WebAdmin. of RecipesNow.com

Salsa is the surprise ingredient in a Thai-and-trendy chicken dish that's bursting with flavor. Evaporated milk delivers a creamy smoothness that's much lower in fat than a traditional Thai coconut cream-based sauce. Serve over hot cooked vermicelli noodles or rice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil 5 mL
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips 500 g
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion 125 mL
  • 3/4 cup medium salsa 175 mL
  • 1/4 cup light peanut butter 50 mL
  • 1 cup 2% Evaporated Milk 250 mL
  • 1 tsp cornstarch 5 mL
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

Directions:

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken and onion, stirring, until chicken is browned all over. Stir in salsa and peanut butter.

Combine evaporated milk and cornstarch; gradually stir into skillet. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until boiling and thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve garnished with cilantro.

Tip:

For authentic Thai flavors, serve with wedges of fresh lime and chopped peanuts.
