- 2 Tbsp peanut oil
- 2 lbs. Boneless skinless chicken breasts (cubed)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 cups broccoli florets
- 2 red bell peppers, julienned
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
- 1 cup carrots, julienned
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- ½ cup Unsalted Peanuts
- 5 green onions chopped
For the Sauce:
- 3 Tbsp water
- 5 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp. peanut oil
- 4 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
To make the sauce, whisk together soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, peanut oil and freshly grated ginger in a small bowl.
Whisk in 3 tablespoons of water.
In a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle peanut oil and add chicken. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until browned; about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute, mixing it with the chicken.
Add broccoli, bell pepper, mushrooms, sugar snaps and carrots to the skillet; sauteing for an additional 6 minutes. Once the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked through, add peanuts and green onions, and drizzle the peanut sauce over the top of the vegetable mixture.
Incorporate everything together with the sauce, coating well, and cook until heated throughout.
