I tried to replicate the crispy-coated chicken served in peanut butter sauce that was on the buffet at a local Chinese restaurant. Most peanut butter chicken recipes I found online were not crispy, or just didn't sound like what I was craving, so I experimented. This may seem unusual at first, but I find it very tasty. And, it is pretty quick to throw together with on-hand ingredients for when the craving hits!
Mix milk, peanut butter, egg, salt and pepper until smooth. Add chicken "finger" pieces. Allow to soak for several minutes. Coat well with breadcrumbs and/or cornflake crumbs. Fry in shallow oil in heavy skillet until browned and chicken is done. Set aside until cooled enough to thinly slice, or leave chicken fingers whole for dipping.
For Sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in bowl or microwave safe measuring cup and heat in microwave for about 35 seconds. Stir, then heat additional 35 seconds. Add water a half teaspoon at a time if too thick, make thickness to your preference. Mix well and pour over sliced chicken, or dip chicken pieces in sauce.
