The extremely simple and quick peanut-yogurt chicken

Nederlandse versie

This is my first blogpost in English (or is it Dunglish?) so bare with me. The concept of this blog is simple. Simple food, simple recipes. Idiot proof. I am no Martha Stewart, fussy is not in my dictionary. So lets get this thing started with my peanut-yogurt chicken.

chicken with peanut sauce

What do you need (4 servings):

4 chicken filets
3 cm (1 inch) fresh ginger (grated)
1 chili (deseeded, chopped)
1 big clove of garlic (grated)
2 to 3 tbsp good quality peanut butter
1 small bunch of coriander (cilantro) (stalks chopped, keep leaves aside)
200 ml (1 cup) greek yogurt (or full fat)
150 ml chicken stock (3/4 cup)
2 tbsp canola oil

Cut the chicken filets into small chunks. Heat the oil in a frying pan and quickly brown the chicken chunks on every side for a minute or so. Add the grated ginger and garlic, the chopped chili and coriander (cilantro) stalks. Stir and fry for another minute.

Add the stock, and the peanut butter and stir in the yogurt. Let it gently bubble for 8 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Take of the head and serve with basmati rice, topped with the cilantro/coriander leaves.

That's it! A great meal within 15 minutes. Enjoy!


  1. Since it’s so easy to prepare, this is good to serve for many visitors. It’s also very nutritious. Chicken fillet is a good choice since it has less cholesterol.
