As for me,  Here's what I made!

Peanut Crusted Chicken Breast with Sauted Broccoli Slaw
and a Chocolate Chili-Peanut Sauce
 Originally I was going to bake my chicken.  When I got home from the store, I thought I had eggs left.  Lo and Behold My Father ate all the eggs!!  So I couldn't make a proper breading.   So I just chopped the peanuts with my handy Food Chopper from pampered chef smashed down the peanuts into the chicken and Pan Fried them. 

Here's a list of ingredients for the Chocolate-Chili Peanut Sauce:


Chocolate-Chili sauce
1/4 Cup Chicken Broth, 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream, 1 Jalapeno, 2 Cloves of Garlic, 2 tbsp Onion, Salt, Pepper and 6 Xocai Nuggets.   I combined everything except the chocolate into a pan and set it to boil down for 15-20 minutes until everything is soft.   Add the mixture to a blender and put in the chocolate.  Blend until smooth.

Peanut sauce:
1/4 cup Peanut Butter, 1 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar, 1//2 tsp Sesame Oil, 1/2 tsp Onion Powder, 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tbsp Soy Sauce, 1/4 cup Chicken broth.  Mix everything together Well till it becomes a nice dipping sauce.  That's it!  Just make sure everything is seasoned well!

I had a lot of fun with peanuts.  I hope you did too!
