Method

  1. Boil the chicken in lightly salted water with celery, carrot and 1 onion.
  2. Once cooked, allow to cool, then bone it and sieve the broth.
  3. In a pan, sauté the remaining diced onion with butter, until it starts to brown.
  4. As it lightly fries add a spoonful of broth to prevent burning.
  5. After a few minutes add a tbsp. of flour and the right quantity of broth for blending it in.
  6. Allow to cook until you get a golden and fairly thick sauce.
  7. Take off the heat and add the crumbled peanuts and the egg yolks, then mix in.
  8. Season with lemon juice and spices according to your taste.
  9. Place the boneless chicken on a serving dish and cover it with the sauce.

Dish history

Looking for an original, new slant on how to prepare chicken? We might have just what you need! This dish has somewhat of an exotic taste, thanks to the use of peanuts, which are very much popular in Thai and Southeast Asian cuisine. The cooking of the meat in boiling water is ideal if you want to achieve a lightdelicate dish. Its taste is then enhanced by the rich, creamy peanut sauce. Serve with salads and vegetables to obtain a nutritionally balanced meal!
