Recipe Tips

  • You can use any cut of chicken for this dish. With that said, I highly recommend that you use chicken thigh as it won’t dry out as much as chicken breast. Another option is to use chicken drumsticks.
  • The chili flakes add a bit of depth to the dish but can be left out if you’re a bit sensitive to spicy food.
  • If you find the sauce is a little too runny towards the end of cooking, you can either thicken it using more peanut butter or use a cornstarch mixture. For the cornstarch mixture, simply combine water and cornstarch until it forms a paste then mix into the sauce.
