Chicken-Wrapped Bratwurst in Honey Peanut Butter Sauce

Whipping up some honey PB sauce

For Memorial Day, we have a lot of family coming to town, and I am the hostess who enjoys spending time in the kitchen, preparing yummy stuff for all of them. Inspired by “The Bee’s Knees” honey peanut butter that Peanut Butter & Co. sent me as part of their Yum Squad, I created a recipe that I think is a winner:  Chicken-Wrapped Bratwurst in PB Sauce.

First of all, I was just going to make chicken marinated in the sauce, but I accidentally defrosted chicken lunchmeat instead of chicken breasts, so I just defrosted bratwurst and figured it would work to wrap the chicken around the bratwurst! That’s my full disclosure on the way I create the cooking magic here at the Alexandra House of Cooking Infamy. I’m actually a vegetarian, so can be excused (somewhat) for my chicken confusion, right?!

In any case, the recipe is below, and was pronounced a delicious success by the meat-eaters in my family. So it shall be repeated for the weekend. It’s a versatile recipe, eh!! (I’m channeling my inner Canadian for no apparent reason there).

Wrapped up and ready to bake

Chicken Wrapped Bratwurst in Honey Peanut Butter Sauce

8 slices chicken lunchmeat
4 large bratwurst

1/8 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey peanut butter
1/2 tsp curry paste (red or green)
2 minced or crushed garlic cloves
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
zest and juice of small lime (or 1/2 of regular)

Whisk together all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Put the bratwurst into the bowl and fully cover it with the sauce. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. While it’s marinating, preheat the oven to 350. Put the bratwurst into a baking dish (or on a parchment covered baking sheet) and wrap the chicken slices around the bratwurst. Pour remaining sauce over the meat and bake for 45-60 minutes.

I baked it in a covered dish, so if you bake it in an uncovered dish or on a baking sheet, the cooking time might be somewhat less. And in case you’re wondering what I ate, I had the borscht, made from beets I grew in my garden.

Serves 4

    I will stay home and eat peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon! jk

    It is almond butter until I get back to the store to replace the peanut butter that got polished off last week.

    We are trying to get a spare bedroom painted this weekend, but since we have a random houseguest I’m guessing it won’t happen now.
    *and your recipe has me giggling. I love the “okay, this is what I’ve got, let’s roll with it” mindset.

    Today, Memorial Day, my Love is off fishing with a buddy and I have the house to myself. Sheer bliss. I’m listening to relaxing music as I sit here and play on the computer. A bit later we’ll be poolside with cocktails, sun and treats.
    Happy Memorial Day and keep those that made it possible in your hearts.
