Peanut Butter Chicken

When I told Scott I was making peanut butter chicken, he was very excited! He stated that whenever he goes to a Chinese buffet (yes, we still do from time to time), he always looks for the peanut butter chicken! The best part--he said this tasted just like it! It was a very simple recipe that I'll be making again!

Serves 4

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
