Peanutty Chicken Recipe

We use peanuts in a variety of dishes. This tender chicken, covered in a tasty gravy and sprinkled with peanuts, has a zip that perks up taste buds.—Mary Kay Dixson, Decatur, Alabama

"This was a nice change of pace to weekday chicken dinner. Easy to prepare and my husband and sons loved it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2009

"Tasty chicken recipe but nothing outstanding. Recipe does not produce a very flavorful sauce; I'm unsure if I was supposed to remove all but a small portion of fat to deglaze. Instead, I followed the recipe as written and wound up with a very thin and flavorless sauce. I did enjoy the peanuts; and if you have a dinner with side dishes that are strong in flavor, perhaps this milder chicken dish is apropos."
