  1. Thoroughly mix tomato puree, peanut butter, orange juice, soy sauce, and honey in a bowl. Stir ginger and curry powder into the tomato mixture.
  2. Season chicken cutlets with salt and black pepper.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken in hot oil until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken, reduce heat to medium-low, and place a cover on the skillet; cook at a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens, about 30 minutes. Add water as needed to thin sauce if it gets too thick.
  4. Sprinkle parsley and peanuts over the chicken to serve.

I may well have gone wrong somewhere, but this turned out like tomato flavored wallpaper paste! I ended up adding a couple of cups of chicken stock, as well as more peanut butter. Not a big hit ...

Instead of parsley I substituted some fresh chopped green onion tops, and laid it over a bed of quinoa with a little extra sauce drizzled on top of it all. So yummy!!! ?? Definitely a permanent ...

First let me say that I am a different Marion than the one comparing this recipe to wallpaper paste. I have made this dish at least 5 times. I always use fresh ginger and include 2 cloves of min...

Simple and easy and tasty make. Substituted paprika for curry because I don't like curry. Was even better next day after sitting overnight in the fridge.

Tasty sauce.. for me needed a little heat. I think the chicken was a little dried out so I'll cook it less time next time. Leftovers were moister as it had time to absorb some sauce

Mixed all the ingredients and ended up with a thick tomato based paste that really overwhelmed my cooking pan. Too much sauce for the quantity of chicken in a large cooking pan. So i switched ...

I had to make a few modifications due to not having some things in the pantry but the overall recipe was great. Everyone loved it and will now become a regular menu item for our dinners.

My son is learning to cook, and decided to make this last night. It was super easy to follow and very yummy. I might add a little kick of spice next time but otherwise it was great.
