Pepper and Peanut Chicken

  • Author: Julie K
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins


  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 15g butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 500g chicken thigh fillets, sliced ***
  • 2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp light soya sauce
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 medium red pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 250g bean sprouts


  1. Combine oil, butter, garlic and onion in a large shallow dish, cook on HIGH for 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken, cover, cook on HIGH for 3 minutes. Stir in combined peanut butter, cardamom, cumin, soya sauce, honey and lime juice, cover, cook on HIGH for 3 minutes; stir once during cooking.
  3. Stir in peppers, cook on HIGH for 1 minute. Serve with the bean sprouts.


I have substituted the meat from a BBQ chicken in place of the thigh fillets and I omit the bean sprouts and serve with steamed rice. Using cooked chicken, I omit the “cook for 3 mins” step re the chicken as it is already cooked. I find the BBQ chicken gives the meal a lovely flavour and texture.

Yum! I love the look of these recipes!
I was desperately searching for a recipe I made a few weeks back that was a warm Moroccan chicken salad that had crunchy chickpeas in it. It was so delicious but I can’t find it again, I’m sure it was on your site. Does anyone remember if it was from here?

That looks so easy and delicious. Like a version of a satay sauce (my mum uses peanut butter in hers) 🙂
