“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. If you’re salt conscious, use low sodium soy sauce.”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger root
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts

Directions

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.

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.

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.
