In this recipe

A Taste of Thai Peanut Sauce Mix acts as both a marinade and a salad dressing in this authentic Thai dish.

6 servings


15 minutes to assemble
Marinate 2-6 hours
10-14 minutes to grill
Total working time: 25-29 minutes

1. Add to blender or food processor, Coconut Milk, Peanut Sauce Mix (both inner envelopes), lemon juice, Fish Sauce, and ginger. Process until smooth.
2. Lay chicken in a size appropriate baking dish so chicken fits snugly but does not overlap. Pour 1 3/4 cups of lemon-ginger, peanut sauce over chicken, reserving 1 cup for dressing. Cover chicken and marinate 2-6 hours in the refrigerator, turning pieces once or twice.
3. Whisk oil in remaining sauce for dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
4. Oil grill grate. Grill chicken 5-7 minutes on each side or until done (opaque and not pink inside, but still moist). Toss mixed greens with reserved dressing and top with chicken. Sprinkle with peanuts if desired. Jasmine rice or grilled bread are flavorful sides to serve with this entrée.
Tip for even grilling:

Pound the fatter end of the breast, between two pieces of plastic wrap, to match the thinner part of breast.
