When The Fridge Is Empty......

So I was totally starving and there was nothing in the house. In the freezer I had ground chuck and boneless skinless chicken breast. The issue is I had no fresh veggies and I had bought chicken breasts that had been pre-boned, skinned and sliced for stir fry. So I had to get creative.

I made a peanut sauce, put the chicken breasts in a roaster, poured the sauce all over it (so it covered the chicken) and covered it in foil. I put it in the oven at 350 for 90 minutes.

For the peanut sauce, I used

  • 1.5 cups peanut butter 
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar 
  • 6 TBSP sesame oil 
  • 6 TBSP soy sauce 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth 
  • 3 TBSP pineapple juice 
I melted the pb in the micorwave until it was easier to mix, added the brown sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and paprika in to it until it was smooth and then mixed in the chicken broth and I would normally have used lime juice but I did not so I actually mixed in some fresh pineapple juice. 

That along with sweet corn and some arborio rice and dinner was done! What did you have for dinner?
