Chicken with Peanuts: An Easy Chicken Recipe

Updated on August 30, 2017

This is an Easy Chicken Dish called 'Chicken with Peanuts'

In honor of Chicken Month I was willing to share my easiest chicken recipe ever! And here it is...You lucky people!

I first tasted this dish at my best friend's place. Her mother had made this delicious recipe called 'Chicken with Peanuts'. It was as though she had spent hours in the kitchen. I was so impressed with the taste I asked her for the recipe and I'm now about to share it with you.

It's one that you can prepare the day before a party if you like, and then finish in the oven before serving.

It's always been a hit when I have served it and many people now share the recipe! So are you ready?

Your Ingredients

Cooked Chicken

Roast Chicken

I always roast the chicken. You will need one cooked chicken, diced with no skin. I shred the chicken and eat the skin. Well, cooks are allowed to test the ingredients aren't they!

If I'm short of time I sometimes buy a rotisserie cooked chicken from the supermarket. And, of course the chicken can be cooked the day before you need to use it in the recipe. Remember to refrigerate!

Do you like to eat the chicken skin?

I tend to use my souffle dish for this recipe but you can use other casserole dishes. This one is just like the one I use and is suited to the microwave and oven. Like most of my dishes it goes in the dishwasher too. At an 8 inch diameter it's just the right size too.

Chop half a cup of peanuts. Of course buying a packet of chopped peanuts will save more time and energy!

Other Ingredients

Two teaspoons of minced onion and two cups of thinly sliced celery.

Two tablespoons of lemon juice and a teaspoon of salt.


You will need one cup of mayonnaise.

And you can use Tabasco Sauce or Worcester Sauce to flavor. I discovered that there is a Mayonnaise that has the Tabasco included and apparently the flavor is yummy - not too overpowering! But I like to use my own discretion as to flavor ~ how about you?

Tabasco Sauce or Worcester Sauce

Use either of these ingredients to taste..depending on your preference. Tabasco is obviously hotter than Worcester Sauce.

I always use Lea and Perinns - you can't go past the original Worcester Sauce in my books!

Grating cheese

Grated Cheese

Sprinkle the top with half a cup of grated cheese. I use cheddar as it has more flavor.

Potato Crisps

One cup of finely crushed potato crisps. I have also used crushed crackers if I haven't had crisps on hand.

Cast your vote for Chicken with Peanuts


Pile ingredients lightly into a casserole dish. You won't actually need a lid as you want it to crisp and brown.

Alternatively you might like to serve in individual baking dishes especially if it is a special dinner party. The dish can then be used as a starter.

I love the design of this dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe casserole. Not that I’d want it sitting in the freezer, it’s too gorgeous for that!

It has a vibrant red color that would look smart on any dinner table...oven to table. You can even use it to roast the chicken in!

The size is 2 3/4-Quart

      Your recipe sounds good. I remember I had chicken with peanut once and I loved the taste.

      This does sound good. The melted cheese and the crispy chips would add that little something extra.

      Now this is a combo that I can only imagine and my imagination is saying that it just has to be yummy. I'd probably go with the Worcester sauce and maybe a touch of Tabasco....very inviting and done with yum....congratulations on be featured on Bravo Squido!
