Peanut crusted chicken

The spring is here and there are so many fresh and tasty vegetables at the market. A perfect occasion to make a colourful dish everyone will love. The best way to do it is to use as many different vegetables as you can. There isn’t a vegetable that I don’t eat, there are some that I didn’t really like but I realized there is always a recipe which can prove me wrong. The easiest way to prepare vegetables is to make them in a wok with a few spices and sauces, they will keep their flavour and texture and combine it with the spices you use.

When doing something as easy as that for a side dish, you can easily prepare peanut crusted chicken. The steps are really similar as when preparing fried chicken, but with this peanut crusted chicken you avoid frying it in oil, instead you bake it in an oven with just a few drops of vegetable oil since peanuts are rich in oil.

This is one of my favourite dishes and I hope you’ll like it too!
