Peanut chicken Vs Cashew Chicken

Chicken is such a common protein, finding ways to enjoy it in a new way might sometimes be difficult, I have concocted two new chicken recipes that are fast, tasty and healthy. Pick your favorite and enjoy!

Peanut chicken 
Ingredients
4 half breast boneless skinless chicken
2 cubes maggi (bouillon cube)
1tsp salt
1tsp black pepper
1/4 cup roasted peanut/groundnut (crushed*)
1/2tscpn dried  rosemary
4TSpns olive or sunflower oil
1 Jalapeno Pepper (chopped)
1 red peppers (chopped)
2 large tomatoes (crushed)
2 Tspn peanut butter
 

* I crushed my Peanut in a Ziploc bag using a rolling pin*

Direction
  • Cut the chicken into one inch cubes, season with maggi, salt, black pepper, and rosemary. set aside for 25mins.
  • Place a medium size Saute pan (or a large pot with depth) on medium heat, add in the oil. Once the oil is hot (~3mins) add in the chicken. Make sure the pot isn't crowded. cook the chicken for 4min then turn it and cook the other side for 4 mins

  • Add in your peanut butter and crushed tomatoes, simmer for 4 mins
  • Add in the chopped peppers. Stir. simmer for 2 more mins

  • Your chicken is ready to serve. try it with rice.
Enjoy!!

Cashew Chicken 

Ingredients
4 half breast boneless skinless chicken
2 cubes maggi (bouillon cube)
1tsp salt
1tsp black pepper
1/4 cup roasted Cashew nut (crushed*)
1/2tscpn dried parsley or rosemary
4TSpns olive or sunflower oil
1/2 green and red peppers (finely chopped) (optional)
