  • 4 chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tbsp oil (I used peanut oil)
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 4-5 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy depending on your texture preference)
  • 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • a ‘glug’ of soy sauce


  • Dice the chicken thighs. Roughly dice the onion.
  • Heat oil in deep fry pan on medium heat. Cook onions until softened slightly.
  • Add the diced chicken thighs, and brown.
  • Once chicken has browned lightly, add the combined cup of water and curry powder.
  • Stir in the peanut butter and golden syrup. Keep stirring until mixture thickens slightly.
  • Reduce heat and cover. Let mixture simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If mixture thickens too much, add small amounts of water until right consistency.
  • After 15 minutes simmering, add the frozen peas and glug of soy sauce.
  • Cover again and cook on low for a further five minutes until peas have cooked.
  • Serve with boiled rice and sprinkled over spring onions to garnish
