Ingredients

For the Sauce
  • 1 c. unsweetened canned coconut milk
  • 3 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. sweet chili sauce - optional
  • 2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Black pepper
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha
For the Chicken
  • 3 large boneless - skinless chicken breasts, cut into thirds
  • Half of one large onion - chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper - chopped
  • 3 stalks fresh lemongrass
  • Green Onion or Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  • Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Place the chicken pieces, onion, and bell pepper into a large zipper-close baggie.
  • Remove the outermost layer from the lemongrass stalks. Use a meat tenderizer or other heavy object to whack the stalks a few times to bruise them and release their oils. Add the stalks to the zipper-close baggie. Pour in the prepared sauce. Marinate 8 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer the contents of the zipper-close baggie to a 9" x 13" glass baking dish. Cover with foil.
  • Bake, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Garnish with cilantro or green onion and serve with jasmine rice.
