Peanut Thai Chicken via Sweetlife.org
Here is a recipe that I found via Sweetlife.org that is good for you, and good for company. It has a good mixture of a little bit of sweet, and a little bit of heat. The recipe calls for these to be grilled, but I used a good cast-iron grill pan and the oven to do the trick.
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos ( I used soy aminos)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 1/2 lbs chicken drumsticks
Salt and pepper to taste
I took all the mixture ingredients and blended them until smooth. I took my drumsticks(placing them in a fridge safe container) and lightly salted and peppered each one. I poured the mixture over all of the drumsticks and let sit in the fridge for about an hour. When I take them out I lightly salt and pepper each drumstick again.
On medium high head with place the drumsticks on the cast iron skillet and brown on both sides, which will take about 6 or 7 minutes. I recommend the side with the most skin down first.Take your pan and place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 25 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees.
It was a great dish. With a cool cucumber salad to go with it, it was great!
