Thai Peanut Chicken

1 lb chicken                                                                                                                           Broccoli                                                                                                                                      Red bell pepper                                                                                                                      Carrots                                                                                                                                 Peanuts (about a handful)                                                                                                           Thai Peanut Sauce (The Wegman’s brand has more of a curry flavor than the name brand.)                  1 T. Sesame Seeds (optional)                                                                                                      (You can use several different kinds of vegetables. These are our favorites. Snap peas and cauliflower are good too.)

Cut up the vegetables and chicken into bite sized pieces. Steam the vegetables. Place the chicken in a frying pan with 1-2 T. of oil and cook on high until browned on all sides. Then turn down the heat, add 1 C. water and cover. Cook until chicken is fully cooked, about 5 minutes. When both the vegetables and chicken are finished, mix them together and add the sauce and peanuts.

You can make the recipe even easier and faster by buying frozen vegetables and frozen pre-cooked chicken. You would just need to heat those up in about 1-2 T. of oil (separately) and then follow the recipe.
