Chicken with Peanut Sauce

This is seriously one of our favorite dishes. It is easy to make and it is SO GOOD.
The most important part is the sauce:


Combine peanut butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and lime juice.


Whisk until smooth and creamy - this takes a little bit of work, actually, the peanut butter is stubborn.


It is very important to get the right chicken. This is my absolute favorite (from Bell & Evans), which is available at Whole Foods Market.


It cooks up super crispy on the outside and super juicy on the inside - perfect!


I like to cut it up Ton Katsu style and serve it with coconut rice and, of course, a big dollop of the peanut sauce.
