How to make Ginger Peanut Chicken Bites

First cut two pounds of chicken thighs in bite size pieces and place them in a gallon size plastic bag.

Yes, you can use chicken breasts… but chicken thighs are not only more budget friendly, they are more tasty in my opinion.

Then add 1/2 cup of ginger salad dressing, soy sauce, and fresh minced garlic.

Massage the bag until combined and marinate in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Next set a large skillet over medium heat and add some olive oil.

Then add the chicken and a small amount of kosher salt and pepper.

Cook the chicken in the skillet for 7 to 9 minutes.

Then add a cup of store bought peanut sauce and cook a few more minutes.

You can find this sauce in the Asian section of most grocery stores.

I served mine over cooked Jasmine rice.

You can make your own rice or take even more help from the store and use the microwave rice pouches.

Also add some lime juice, more peanut sauce, and sriracha for a some added heat.
