Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

I discovered Thai food through Weight Watchers Smart ones frozen meals. No really.  There are a few of them that I really love! So when this recipe poped up on my Google Reader, I knew I had to try it!  I  made this on the day of the blizzard and it was so easy and totally hit the spot! I will definitely be adding this to the rotation.

Thai Honey Peanut Chicken
from: The Tasty Kitchen via ThreeManyCooks

1 pound Chicken, In Chunks
¼ cups Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic (approximately 1 Large Clove)
1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter (heaping Tablespoon Even Better)
½ teaspoons Curry Powder
1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional) - I used Chili Sauce

Mix ingredients and marinate chicken for 2-3 hours.

Cook chicken in the sauce over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is done. Reduce heat to medium-low and add precooked veggies if desired. Serve topped with sesame seeds.

To thicken sauce if needed: reduce heat to medium-low and add a cornstarch slurry (1 teaspoon cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water). - I didn't need to do this.

 I doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did because Zach said the leftovers were delicious!  My only complaint? It was a bit on the salty side.  It also made my house smell like soy sauce for about 3 days, but it was worth it.
