HOW TO MAKE KETO CHICKEN WITH PEANUT BUTTER SAUCE

CHICKEN MEAT – for this type of keto recipe use chicken thighs or chicken breasts cut in small pieces or in small cubes. The best is a little bite size. You need to brown pieces of meat on lard, olive oil or ghee. 

BLEND OF SPICES – before you start cooking you need to prepare a blend of spices for this dish. If you don’t have all, don’t worry, probably peanut butter will be very dominant, but we love peanut butter!

So, in this spice blend, I put salt and pepper, as a basic spices plus powdered garlic, curry powder, cayenne pepper, ground paprika, turmeric and crushed chili pepper. Cayenne pepper and crushed chili pepper you need to adapt to your taste. If you like it more spicy and hot, you can add more. Because I have a small children, I don’t put too much. However, I put a little and they eat this, despite it’s hot and spicy.

Also, we love to add few drops of extra hot pepper sauce directly on sauce in the plate. That’s great option for hot food lovers with small children and other family members with a sensitive palates.

KETO PEANUT BUTTER SAUCE RECIPE

For keto peanut butter sauce I use unsweetened peanut butter. For this amount I put 2 TBS and it’s just perfect. If you want to get really peanutty flavor, put more. To make a real thick sauce, I use beef broth or chicken broth, heavy whipping cream and peanut butter. With these 3 ingredients you get thick, creamy and flavorful low carb sauce. 

This peanut butter sauce is made to be served with chicken meat. Taste and flavor of this low carb peanut butter sauce is really incredible. I think I’m gonna make it sometime plane. To pour it over some veggies or any pan fried meat. I think it would go great with steamed broccoli. That might be really wonderful combo.

RICED CAULIFLOWER

Riced cauliflower is delicious keto side dish for this chicken recipe with peanut butter sauce. I always fry riced cauliflower on hot olive oil. Before frying cauliflower, I like to fry just a little onion. Literally the smallest onion you can find will be enough because all we need is that special caramelized onion aroma. After onion is browned, translucent and caramelized, just put riced cauliflower and fry until all the liquid is gone. At the end, if you like, ad 1 egg and stir in. It will get delicious aroma and rich taste.

    Looks amazing. I need to make this dairy free. What can I substitute for the heavy whipping cream and what quantity? Thanks.

    This was outstanding flavor! The sauce was superb! It makes plenty. I actually used some of the leftover sauce cold as a dipping sauce for raw veggies. Thank you! Excellent!
