Peanut Butter Chicken -

This recipe may sound strange, but oddly enough, it works!  I mean, really works…its delicious!  Its also ready in 30 minutes, so its perfect for a weeknight meal.  My husband went for seconds, and I’ve made it multiple times, so I know its a winner!

Peanut Butter Chicken

8 x 3 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or 4 x 6 oz breasts)
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing (calorie wise or fat free)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
5 packets Krisda stevia (or sugar substitute of choice)
5 Tbsp peanut butter (natural, with no salt) smooth or crunchy
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (for a bit of heat) for very mild, use 1/4 tsp

Green onion, chopped (1 Tbsp per serving) *fresh cilantro would also be good too!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a smaller bowl whisk together everything except the chicken and green onion.  Place raw chicken in an oven proof (9×11) dish and pour sauce overtop.  Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.  Top each portion with 1 Tbsp chopped green onion.
