'The Heat is On' Peanut Butter Chicken

This past March my dad and I went to visit my aunt and cousin in NYC for the Big East Basketball Tournament and in between games they were nice enough to take us around the 'big city'. Pops and I had a great time with them, but the one place I HAD to go to was the Peanut Butter Company. I was about 2 weeks out from the show and carrying around baggies of chicken and asparagus, so this place was going to be heaven like for me. Peanut Butter Company was a small, cute little sandwich shop on the side streets of NYC.  They had all the different kinds of Peanut Butter concoctions that you could imagine. For me, it was hard not to want to eat everything, but they had a contest diet friendly item on the menu (the sampler). I ordered it and quickly became obsessed with their peanut butter. I bought their Dark Chocolate Dreams and The Heat is On there for after the show. Needless to say, I ate the dark chocolate tub in two days (day of show and afterwards),  and now I'm finally breaking into the spicy 'The Heat is On' tub. FYI- Their website is: http://ilovepeanutbutter.com/index.php You can order directly from there, or hit their locator to find a store near you. I found it at our local Soergal's natural food store and inGiant Eagle's organic section. They may not have all the flavors there, but it's worth a try!

3 pounds diced uncooked chicken
1/2 c white wine vinegar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 c diced scallions
1 tbsp olive oil
1 diced red pepper (green or yellow is fine too)
1/2 c The Heat is On Peanut Butter

  • Take diced chicken and put into a large bowl, add in vinegar, lemon juice, and garlic. Mix together so chicken is coated.
  • Heat up large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • Put the diced chicken into the skillet and cook covered for about 7-10 minutes on med-high heat.
  • Take lid off and add in diced peppers and cook for 2 more minutes,uncovered, until peppers are slightly tender.
  • Add in peanut butter and stire continously until chicken is evenly coated with the peanut butter. I did this for about 2 minutes and then added the scallions a few seconds before serving. Serve over brown rice or quinoa.
