This is a beautiful dish that combines elements of earthy peanuts, acidic citrus, and umami; finishing off with a slightly sweet and spice from the chili. If you’re a fan of Asian style peanut sauces (think satay), then you’ll love this dish. Plus, it sits at just under four net carbs per serving! Recipe from...

Ingredients
  • 6 medium chicken thighs boneless, skinless (~25oz)
  • 6 tbsp peanut butter smooth (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients (except for the chicken) to a container and immersion blend.

  2. Cube chicken thighs and season and salt and pepper.

  4. Drain the excess moisture with a paper towel and set aside.

  5. Continue cooking the chicken until the chicken is browned well. Continue draining excess moisture throughout the cooking process, but don't be overly aggressive. It won't take too long.
