Creamy Peanut Butter Chicken with Asparagus
Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
Chicken breast, Asparagus, peanut butter, stove

A delightful and comforting dish that combines the tender juiciness of chicken breast with the nutty richness of peanut butter, balanced by the fresh, crisp taste of asparagus. Perfect for a cozy dinner for four.


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch of asparagus (approximately 500g)
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or chunky, as preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Trim the asparagus, cutting off the woody ends and slicing the stalks into bite-sized pieces. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Cook the Chicken: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside, keeping it warm.
  3. Prepare the Sauce: In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent and fragrant. Stir in the peanut butter, chicken broth, and soy sauce, mixing until the peanut butter is fully melted and the sauce is smooth.
  4. Cook the Asparagus: Add the asparagus pieces to the skillet with the sauce. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender but still crisp.
  5. Combine and Serve: Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, spooning the sauce over them. Let everything simmer together for another 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

This dish brings together the creamy, nutty flavors of peanut butter with the bright, fresh taste of asparagus and succulent chicken. Serve with rice or a simple salad for a well-rounded, comforting meal. Enjoy!
