So now that you have Peanut Butter stored up, now
what? There is more than just eating PB and J sandwiches, PB on crackers, or just eating it on a spoon or on apples.
Here are a few recipes I found to use up peanut butter.
Cream of Peanut Soup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
- 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 cup milk
- Snipped chives
- Chopped peanuts for garnish
- MELT butter in medium saucepan. Cook celery and onion until onion is tender, but not browned. Stir in flour and cook about one minute. Whisk in chicken broth, cooking until thickened and bubbly.
- REMOVE from heat. Puree mixture in batches, in a blender, until smooth. Return to saucepan.
- ADD the peanut butter and milk, stirring to blend thoroughly. Heat through, but do not boil. Serve hot or cold. Garnish with snipped chives and chopped peanuts, if desired.
Crispy Peanut Butter Pretzel Chicken
3 tablespoons fig jam
2 tablespoons prepared stone ground mustard
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, thighs or legs
8 ounces sourdough pretzels, coarsely crushed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Mix together fig jam and mustard in a small bowl; set aside.
2. Place pretzels in a food processor, and pulse until coarsely ground. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together peanut butter, egg, water, salt, pepper and hot sauce.
4. Place flour in a large plastic bag. Add chicken breasts and shake to coat evenly. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then dredge in the pretzel crumbs, pressing coating lightly to adhere to chicken. Place coated chicken on a rack set over a baking sheet. Bake until chicken is cooked through, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
5. To serve, divide fig mustard among six plates, and using the back of a spoon, smear it in a line across center of plate. Place a piece of chicken on top of jam, garnish with parsley, and serve hot.
