Ingredients

  • 4 portions chicken breast, skin on
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Basil leaves, to garnish
  • For the sauce
  • ¾ cup smooth organic peanut butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • ½ cup packed basil leaves, shredded
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
If the chicken is on the bone, remove and keep the bone for making broth or stock. Moisten with olive oil and season with salt.
In a nonstick pan over a low heat, cook gently until the skin is crisp and golden.
Turn and place, skin-side up, in the oven for 5 minutes or until just done and still moist. Season with black pepper.
Serve with the peanut sauce and garnish with basil leaves.

To make the sauce: Whisk together the peanut butter, garlic and citrus juices. Stir in the basil and season.

Cook’s note: Serve with a salad of shredded cucumber and carrot with lemon juice and sunflower oil.
