Ingredients in Peanut Butter Satay Chicken

You will need 1 whole chicken breast. Feel free to use thighs instead.

You will need smooth peanut butter and coconut milk. Make sure the coconut milk has been refrigerated for at least 4 hours before. We will be using just the thick top part.

You will need chilies (optional) and veggies of your choice. I used bell peppers and mushrooms.
