The girls and I were grateful to celebrate my husband’s birthday yesterday. We have learned to appreciate each other and enjoy life’s simple blessings. What better way to celebrate a birthday than with food and music?
For the appetizer, we had some Thai-style chicken, and it was delicious.
2 lbs. boneless chicken breast
6 cloves garlic
1 large onion, quartered
3 inches ginger root, peeled and sliced
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp turmeric
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup peanut oil
¼ cup of soy sauce
Hot sauce to taste
Cut the chicken into strips
Put all the remaining ingredients in a food processor and puree.
Pour one cup of the marinade over the chicken and let them sit for two hours.
Drain the chicken.
Grill them 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Serve with peanut sauce.
1 cup of the reserved marinade
¾ cup chunky peanut butter
1/3 cup cream
3 Tbsp sugar
1 cup chicken stock
In a small pot, mix together the marinade, peanut butter, cream, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Thin with the chicken stock as needed.
Season to taste and serve with the grilled chicken.
We had a wonderful time celebrating the man of the house and we hope you like our appetizer.
