Marinated Peanut Chicken A La Laura


  • 3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 8 chicken thighs


In a medium mixer bowl combine the crushed peanuts, paprika, ginger, turmeric, honey, olive oil and salt; use an electric mixer to blend together and form a thick, crunchy, spreadable paste. (Note: If you find it too gooey or thick, try adding a little cola; it gives the recipe a nice, exotic flavor!)
