How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot, then stir in the onion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Stir in the chicken, peanut butter, soy sauce, cocoa powder and chili powder, and bring to a simmer.
