Paleo Thai Grilled Chicken and “Peanut” Sauce
The other day I went out to the grill to throw some chicken on the grill. (Not this Thai grilled chicken, but another kind of grilled chicken. You can’t have too many grilled chicken recipes.)
So I go out to turn the grill on and the propane was empty. Then I noticed the knobs were still in the “on” position.
Since I do 99.9% of the grilling around here, I knew it was me. Steve likes to call me out when I leave the stove on, the oven on, my flat iron plugged in.
Honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t burned down our house by now.
Speaking of grilled chicken, I LOVE marinades. I whipped up this easy marinade with Thai flavors to use in some spring rolls, and the recipe is going in my permanent stash.
If you happen to have a 4-year-old begging to help you, have her pour the marinade on the chicken. Mine loves helping me with kitchen projects.
Unless those projects happen to do with cleaning or putting something away. I’ve learned that, “Mom, I want to help you!” means “Mom, I want to put my hands in food!”
I wouldn’t mind putting a few fingers in this, though. I made some warm “peanut” sauce to go with the chicken and it was the best decision I made all week. (Aside from turning off the grill this time.)
I used almond butter as the base and it tastes every bit as good as peanut-based sauces served with Chicken Satay.
This chicken and would be good in spring rolls, over a bed of rice, and salad greens. Or nachos with Sweet Potato Chips (I just thought of that and I’m SO making it.) Or on pizza with this grain-free pizza crust.
Have you checked out the Thai section of my recipe index? Lots of tasty stuff over there!
