This recipe is reminiscent of Asian Peanut Chicken, but uses much better ingredients!
Recipe: Asian Almond Chicken
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
2 TBSP sesame oil
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 tsp red chili pepper flakes (optional)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 cup chopped green onions
3 TBSP coconut oil
2 TBSP roasted sesame seeds
In a large Ziploc bag, combine the chicken, almond butter, sesame oil, olive oil, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt and let marinate for at least an hour. When ready, heat the 3 TBSP coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken (with the marinade) and cook for about 5 minutes. Add in green onions and cook another 5-7 minutes, until chicken is done. Remove to serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve promptly.
