Make this simple Peanut Chicken in an Instant Pot or on the stovetop, either way, it’s a delicious weeknight meal that comes together quickly and easily. Chicken breast is simmered in a tasty, Balinese-style, peanut sauce then served over your choice of rice or a hearty bed of baby spinach and sprinkled with the optional but amaaaaaazing Peanut Chili Crunch.
The best part, this can be prepped ahead, stored in a ziplock, then cooked during the busy workweek. Or, cook it ahead on a Sunday and warm it up during the week. Either way, you will love it. Trust me.
How to Make Instant Pot Peanut Chicken!
If going the rice route, make sure to make the chili cucumber salad to go with it…..so fresh and flavorful!
This meal was inspired by our trip to Bali last year where the people are as kind and warm as the beautiful surroundings. The thing that struck me most while being in Bali was how two very different religious groups- Muslim and Hindu, lived so peacefully together, holding respect and understanding for each other. It was an honor to witness this beautiful interweaving of cultures, a good reminder that this is possible when we live from the heart. Our thoughts create fear and with it, separation, barriers and prejudice. But our hearts want to love and connect.
If serving with rice, up your veggies by adding the Chili Cucumber Salad and wilted spinach.
Or serve the warm peanut chicken directly over a bed of baby spinach, gently wilting it.
Sprinkle with the optional Peanut Chili Crunch, which you will fall head over heels in love with!
It adds the best texture and flavor to Asian style meals…..so tasty!
What I love about this Instant Pot Peanut Chicken Recipe is, it’s basically “dump and go”. A good one for those of you who are short on time, or have little ones running all around you. Just put everything in the pot and give it a stir and pressure cook it for 10 minutes. That’s it. So easy! But not lacking in flavor whatsoever!
And remember, you can always swap out Almond butter for the Peanut Butter!
So delicious, so easy….. an Instant Pot Chicken recipe that can be made on the stovetop too! A fast and easy meal, that can also be made ahead if meal prepping.
