Thai Peanut Butter Chicken Thighs Recipe

Ready for a flavor-packed journey? Our Thai Peanut Butter Chicken Thighs recipe combines the rich, nutty taste of peanut butter with the exotic flair of Thai spices, creating a dish that's both easy to make and incredibly delicious.


  • 2 lb chicken thighs
  • Olive oil (for binding)
  • Grillheads Jack of All Rubs
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste (adjust to taste for spiciness)
  • Fresh cilantro (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Begin by coating your chicken thighs with a bit of olive oil. This acts as a binder for the seasoning. Generously apply Grillheads Jack of All Rubs for an all-purpose flavor that complements the Thai peanut sauce.

  2. Make the Sauce: In a bowl, combine peanut butter, coconut milk, and red curry paste. Adjust the amount of curry paste based on your preference for heat. Mix until you achieve a thick, smooth consistency.

  3. Grill the Chicken: Preheat your grill to 450°F. Place the chicken thighs over direct heat and grill, flipping occasionally. The goal is to cook the chicken thoroughly while achieving a nice char on the outside.

  4. Sauce and Serve: Once grilled to perfection, coat the chicken with the Thai peanut sauce. You can add as much or as little as you like. Garnish with fresh cilantro for a burst of freshness and color.
