Thai Peanut Chicken

Jeannette.Derner's picture
This is a very tasty Asian-inspired dish made with chicken and broccoli in a spicy peanut sauce. If you like it mild, use less cayenne, like it spicy, use more.
Ingredients
  Uncooked white rice 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Creamy peanut butter 2 Tablespoon
  White wine vinegar 2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
  Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 4 , cut into thin strips
  Chopped garlic 3 Tablespoon
  Chopped ginger root 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon (fresh)
  Chopped green onion 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Broccoli florets 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Unsalted dry roasted peanuts 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Directions

1. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, peanut butter, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in a skillet or wok over high heat. Add chicken, garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is golden on the outside, about 5 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to medium, and add green onion, broccoli, peanuts, and the peanut butter mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until broccoli is tender, and chicken is cooked through. Serve over rice.
