James had been requesting chicken strips for a while now, and since we had some extra chicken breasts, I thought I'd go ahead and make some! Now, you know me - I can't just make your regular chicken strips. I used this recipe from Mark's Daily Apple as inspiration. Instead of the usual flour/bread crumb coating, I opted for more flavorful and crunchy chopped peanuts. The peanuts got me thinking about Southeast Asian flavors. Peanuts, ginger, cilantro, lime, etc. So I beat some cilantro into the egg and added some lime and ginger into the sauce. For some extra peanutty flavor, you can also add a tablespoon or so of creamy peanut butter into the sauce. We both really enjoyed these Nutty Asian Chicken Strips, and hopefully you will too!

What are some of your favorite Asian flavors?
