In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for spice mix. Add chicken breast and 1/2 spice mix to a bowl and mix until chicken is coated. Heat tbsp of olive oil in a pan and add chicken breast. Cook for approx 5 mins, until chicken has some colour on it, it doesn’t need to be fully cooked, then remove and set aside.
Add 2nd tbsp of olive oil to same pan, reduce heat to low and add onions, garlic and chilli. Cook for 5 mins, or until soft. Transfer onions, garlic and chilli to a blender or food processor, then add chicken stock, peanuts and remaining spice mix to blender and blitz until it’s almost smooth (you still want some crunch from the peanuts).
Transfer blended sauce back to pan. Add light coconut milk, peanut butter, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, maple syrup and stir everything together. Bring to a low simmer and add chicken back to pan along with lemongrass. Continue to simmer curry for at least 15 mins until it reaches desired consistency. 5 mins before serving, add in green beans and red pepper to partially cook so they’re still crunchy.
