Thai Peanut Skillet Chicken

A 30 minute one skillet meal that is full of amazing flavor and veggies!  The thai peanut sauce glazes the chicken perfectly and this will be a hit for dinner!


I love one skillet meals.  It sure has been busy around our house the last few weeks.  Between scouts, basketball games, practices, piano lessons, and a busy toddler, we always seem like we are on the go!  The great thing about this meal is that it was ready in just 30 minutes.

I still love to have a delicious and hearty meal for my family when we are so busy.  This meal is quick and easy and the flavor is incredible!


I especially LOVE the thai peanut glaze on this chicken.  It thickens up and coats the chicken perfectly adding such amazing flavor.  But how can you go wrong with a soy sauce, peanut, garlic, lime glaze that coats the chicken perfectly?  You just can’t.  My mind was seriously blown with with the first bite!

We all loved this meal and I know that your family will too!

  1. I noticed you’re not putting total carbs and fiber in the nutritional facts and some don’t have them at all, like the Thai Peanut Skillet Chicken and Skinny Lemon Bars.

    1. I suggest using My Fitness Pal for full nutritional information. I usually don’t like to put the nutritional info on my recipes because it all can vary.

  2. I made this tonight for my son and I. It was delicious! I love the peanut sauce, it was very tasty. I topped ours with cilantro (cause I had some in my refrig and I love it and chopped peanuts.) Thanks!
