Freezer Peanut Butter Chicken Marinade

Friday, April 27, 2012

Freezer Peanut Butter Chicken Marinade is a great change of flavors using these ingredients!
Here is the second marinade in a series on my blog for the freezer series while I am away on our trip... An Asian flavor we just love this one!

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or canola oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

3 tablespoons ketchup

8 pieces boneless chicken

Place all ingredients into a 1-gallon freezer zip lock bag. Lay flat in freezer. To thaw and cook: Lay completely flat place in the refrigerator to thaw overnight. Remove from freezer bag when ready to cook. Warning: never thaw out chicken on counter top, as raw chicken can become contaminated.

Sauteed: Place in a heated medium size fry pan with 1 tablespoons olive oil, saute' for two to three minutes on each side for thin or longer depending on thickness.

Baking: Place on a piece of oil sprayed foil or parchment paper lined baking pan with juices. Bake @ 350 degree in a preheated oven. Around 40 to 60 minutes or until juices run clear.

Grill: Spray the grates lightly with cooking oil. Heat grill. Grill the chicken on each side till juices run clear basting with marinade while cooking.

Crockpot Method: Put chicken in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour liquid herb ingredients over the chicken. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-6 hours or until done.

  5. I like peanut satay, so I am sure I would enjoy this one! I am liking this series more and more Claudia. For some reason I bought a ton of chicken last grocery visit, so I am glad to find this recipe! Can't wait to see what's next.

  6. II enjoy satay but this sounds so much easier than my recipe and I'm sure with excellent results. My husband could live on peanut butter. I think I will try this one for him.

  7. I love satay sauce so I'd have to dress this up with a bit of spice but it sounds yummy!

  8. Yum! Almost anything with peanut butter is good in my opinion. This is different though. Sounds wonderful.

  9. Love it! I like to toss a marinade in with meat before I freeze it. It makes getting flavour on busy nights so much easier!

  10. I really love the addition of peanut butter in this marinade. I bet this is delicious!

  11. PB marinade is surely my kinda treat. I'm going to give this a try soon.

  12. I would not have thought to put those ingredients together, but am intrigued!
