Jim's Peanut Butter Chicken

When my husband cooks, it's a little of this, and a spoonful of that. He NEVER measures anything. That means that no two meals are (or can be!) ever duplicated. However, when he created this one, it got a 10 from everyone in the family, so I literally had him remake it later in the day so I could measure the ingredients before they went into the pot. Successfully created and deliciously duplicated!
