Spicy Peanut Chicken

Boneless chicken thighs and Broccolini, both coated in a chili-spiked peanut sauce, emerge deliciously caramelized after just 10 minutes under the broiler.

    Took Amy H's advice and thinned it out a little bit. Also made it a spicier, for our taste. Served with sliced cucumbers since the sauce was satay like. DELICIOUS.

    I just made this. I used broccoli instead of broccolini, and doubled the sauce because I doubled the chicken. The sauce is ok, but it needs something, like fish sauce. If I make this again, I would thin out the sauce a little more, add a couple of teaspoons of fish sauce and maybe some sugar. Good idea, definitely needs some tweaking.
