Servings 4


  • 2 chicken breasts cut into 4 slices each
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped


  • Combine all of the ingredients except for the chicken to create a peanut sauce marinade. Reserve half and use the rest to pour over the chicken. Let the chicken rest in the marinade for about 2 hours prior to cooking.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Sear the marinaded chicken over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes per side, more if your chicken breasts are particularly thick.
  • Stick the chicken breasts into the oven while in the pan (if oven proof, transfer to a baking sheet if not). Cook for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Spread the remaining peanut sauce on the top of each breast. Serve right away alongside orange noodles. Enjoy!
