SIMPLE THAI CHICKEN
This Thai chicken is absolutely delicious and can be tailored to your spice level. Serves 4.
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
4 boneless, skin-on, split chicken breasts
JF Universal or JF Spicy Salt to taste
1/4 C peanuts, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 C sweet chili sauce
2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
Juice of 1 lime
Sriracha, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400º. To make the sauce, whisk together chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lime juice and Sriracha in a small bowl and set to the side.
Melt the butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Season chicken with JF Salt, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Stir in chili sauce mixture.
Place into the oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165º, about 20 minutes. Broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
Serve immediately and garnish with peanuts and cilantro, if desired.
