16 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
12 boned, skinned chicken thighs
3 cups peanut butter
3 cups coconut milk
3/4 cup of lime juice
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons ground ginger
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk
pepper to taste


The day of your party, cut the chicken breasts and thighs into 1” pieces, easy to eat for your party guests. Return to the refrigerator and keep it cold, only taking out what you need to work with.

Combine all the other ingredients in a large pot over medium heat. Stir continually. When it is gets bubbly, let it cook for a couple more minutes, and then into pour your chafing dish , which you want to fire up.

Preheat your oven to 400° .

Set up your largest frying pan on the stove with some olive oil heating. In the hot pan, brown the chicken pieces, flipping them over to get all sides. This should take just a few minutes.

Put the browned chicken onto a cooking sheet covered with foil and put it into the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Check a couple of pieces with your thermometer - you’re looking for 165° . When you get to that temp, pour the chicken into the chafing dish with the hot sauce.

Meanwhile, start another batch in your frying pan. Keep frying, baking, and adding the finished chicken to the chafer.

Add boiling water to thin the sauce if needed. And remember to check the water level under the food. If you need to add more, always add boiling water.
