Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

I found this recipe on my friend Heather, aka the menu mama's, blog a few weeks ago. (Check her out at www.themenumama.blogspot.com)  I think she got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman. I love that it is something different with ingredients I usually have on hand. And it is so easy and delicious!

 When it starts to cook it will look like this.
As it cooks down it looks more like this!
Thai Honey Peanut Chicken

1 lb chicken breast, cut in chunks (I used 5-6 tenderloins)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp sriracha, or a few drops of tabasco
Mix ingredients and marinate chicken for 2-3 hours.
Cook chicken in the sauce over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is done.
If the sauce starts to dry up before the chicken is cooked through, turn the heat down to medium so the sauce doesn't burn before the chicken is done.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds (I skipped this because I didn't have any) and serve with fried rice.
