This peanut chicken is soooo tasty. There’s something about adding peanut butter to savoury dishes which I just love. Even people who don’t like peanut butter will like this dish I think.
The other great thing about this dish? It’s insanely quick and easy. I had this on the table (ok, on my lap in front of the TV) within half an hour. Plus you can definitely add loads more veg and use up whatever you have around to make it a super healthy dinner.

I’ve been making a few more quick dinners this week. Since Will’s already left for the States I’m trying to take the opportunity to spend the evenings putting together blog posts for the coming weeks so quick meals are a must.
Watch this space for them coming on the blog soon.
I’m hoping to be able to write a bit while I’m out there about all the food I’ll be eating, I’m sure you’re all as excited as I am…
Right, better go get a load of laundry on otherwise I’ll have no clean clothes for holiday!
