Alabama is well known for growing peanuts…in fact, our state hosts the National Peanut Festival each year. Peanut butter stars in this recipe, making a tasty sauce for the tender chicken. Don’t let the unusual combination of ingredients—tomato sauce, chili powder, garlic and onion with the peanut butter—keep you from trying it. My family loves it!
“My grandkids think this shredded chicken is the best thing under a bun. The peanut butter flavor and fresh fruit and veggie toppings make it a fun, packable sandwich for lunches.” —Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas
"This recipe was born from the desire to develop a time-friendly, easy-on-the-budget entree loaded with savory Asian flavor. It’s a family favorite and also a favorite at the girls’ camp where I am the head cook. I usually serve it with rice prepared with coconut milk." Debbie Fleenor — Monterey, Tennessee
“I serve this salad in lettuce leaves or in pita pockets to friends who enjoy something a bit out of the ordinary. This is fast, easy, a bit exotic and, best of all, delicious.” If you like peanut butter, this is the chicken salad for you! Mary Bergfeld - Eugene, Oregon
