Chicken in Peanut Gravy


This is an Indonesian fusion adaption of my own.  In my opinion it is best made with chicken thighs though I had only breast available when I made this.

  • Two chicken breasts cut into large pieces, or four to six thighs.
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • One can coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock (or water + stock powder)
  • 2 Tbsp crushed garlic
  • 1 Tbsp crushed or grated ginger
  • 1 tsp cumin whole cumin seed
  • 2 or 3 chillies chopped or more to taste
  • 2 tsp lemon grass paste
  • 2 Tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 3 Tbsp crunchy peanut butter (or you can use peanut sauce)
  1. Brown the onion and chicken in hot peanut oil
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer on low to medium heat until the chicken is cooked through and the gravy thick and creamy.

Delicious with rice and stir fried vegetables.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
