Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are my favorite form of protein (other than peanut butter, of course!) But the problem is that things can often get boring with chicken breast. The Heat is On peanut butter instantly jazzes things up in this quick and easy chicken dish. I’ve made this chicken countless times and my favorite way to serve it is with steamed broccoli and rice.

The marinade will be very thick and when cooking, it creates a delicious crispy crust. If you’re serving this to young children, you might want to do half The Heat is On and half Smooth Operator peanut butter to cut the intensity.

2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using non-stick, there’s no need to add any oil to the pan. If not using a non-stick pan, add about a tablespoon of canola oil to the pan. Place the chicken strips in the pan, keeping a little room between each piece. Fry the chicken for about 3–5 minutes and then flip and cook for another 2–4 minutes.
