Ingredients
  Long-grain rice 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs) (Preferably Converted)
  Salt To Taste
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Frozen petite peas 10 Ounce, thawed (1 Package)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic cloves 3 Small, minced
  Ground cumin 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Bottled asian fish sauce/1 teaspoon anchovy paste 2 Teaspoon (Nuoc Mam)
  Nuoc mam/1 teaspoon anchovy paste 2 Teaspoon (Bottled Asian Fish Sauce)
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Coconut milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chicken broth 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts/Boneless, skinless, chicken thighs 1 1⁄4 Pound, cut into thin 1 inch strips
  Unsweetened peanut butter 1 Tablespoon, unhomogenized
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fresh cilantro leaves 1 Cup (16 tbs), finely chopped
  Lime wedges 4
Directions

1. Combine the rice, salt, and water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover and cook until the rice is barely tender, 15 minutes. Add the peas and simmer until the rice is tender and the peas are warmed through, another 2 to 3 minutes. Keep the rice warm, covered, until the chicken is done.
2. While the rice and peas are cooking, melt the butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, cumin, and ginger and saute, stirring, for a few seconds. Then add the nuoc mam and flour and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the flour taste is cooked out a bit, about 1 minute.
3. Stir in the coconut milk and broth, and, whisking continuously, slowly add to the skillet over medium heat. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. When the coconut sauce has thickened after 1 minute, stir in the chicken strips and simmer, uncovered, until cooked through, 3 minutes. Whisk in the peanut butter. (Work it in from the edge of the skillet so it is easier to blend into the sauce). Stir the ingredients together to evenly distribute the peanut butter in the sauce.
4. Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the cayenne and cilantro, and adjust the seasoning. Serve over the rice and peas, and garnish each portion with a lime wedge.
