This spicy Thai peanut chicken is cooked in one baking dish … and you can have it on the table in under an hour! 

Maybe you can guess roughly what I’m going to say next … pretty much any meal with peanuts in it is my food heaven. I’m also a huuuge fan of quick one-pan chicken meals, for quite a few reasons (hardly any time, hardly any washing up, shove in oven and forget etc. etc.).

Oh, spicy Thai peanut chicken, you are adorable! And if you like chicken satay, I think you will DEFINITELY find it adorable, too. As I was eating it, the phrase ‘spicy Thai peanut chicken, where have you been all my life?’ kept running through my mind. I didn’t want the meal to end. Honestly, it was DE-licious times about 50.

The best thing is it took hardly ANY effort to make at all. It’s one of those meals that pretty much makes itself. 

One-pan spicy Thai peanut chicken

Chicken thighs cooked in a spicy Thai-style peanut sauce. If you like satay, you'll LOVE this. It takes moments to whisk up the sauce and just over half an hour to bake. The finished dish is drowned with sauce and tastes absolutely delicious. Sprinkle with spring onions, fresh red chilli and more nuts and devour. Mmmm!



  • 0.25 cups peanut butter
  • 0.25 cups soy sauce
  • 0.25 cups coconut milk
  • 0.25 cups chicken stock blended into 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • ginger (thumb-width piece, at least)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (I used Japanese mirin, but Chinese is fine, too)
  • 2 chilis small red
  • 1.5 pounds chicken thighs skinless boneless (I used 10 smallish ones)

Toppings & accompaniments

  • 3 scallions (spring onions), chopped finely
  • 1 handful peanuts salted is fine, crushed in a food processor or bashed with a rolling pin in a plastic bag
  • 1 more red chili chopped finely
  • lime wedges
  • rice or rice noodles to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/355F.
  2. Slowly blend the soy sauce into the peanut butter in a jug or medium bowl, then blend in the coconut milk & stock/corn flour. Stir in the garlic, ginger, honey, rice vinegar & chilis.
  3. Arrange the chicken thighs in a large baking dish, then pour the sauce all over them. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for about 35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce bubbling and thickened a little (10 minutes before the end of cooking time, remove the foil, spoon the sauce all over the chicken again and then return to the oven uncovered - you might need to cook for a tiny while longer depending on the size of your chicken thighs. Also see notes below for another tip!)
  4. Spoon the chicken and sauce into individual bowls over rice or rice noodles (or into one nice larger serving dish with a separate bowl of rice/noodles) and sprinkle the spring onions, peanuts and remaining chili over. Eat immediately with lime squeezed over.

Recipe Notes

Just a note on the thickness of the sauce. For some reason every time I've made this the sauce has turned out a tiny bit different. As in, sometimes it's a bit thicker, sometimes a bit thinner. I think it all depends on how much chicken you use as obviously the juices run out during cooking and mingle with the sauce. Taste-wise, it's exactly the same (yummy!) but if you think your sauce is a bit too thin for your liking when it comes out of the oven, just add another tablespoon or so of corn flour blended with a bit of water or stock, drizzle and stir it roughly into the sauce, then return to the oven for 5 more minutes.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
