Spicy Peanut Stir Fry

I have been blogging a really long time. And I have read a lot of blogs too with cute anecdotes accompanying every recipe from cupcakes to liverwurst...no joke, read it here.  I am okay enough with myself to admit that I do not have a cute story to go along with every recipe I make. Most of the time, I just make something great by accident and want to record it for posterity. This is one of those recipes. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I do.

This stir fry took less than 30 min from start to finish and had amazing textures and was very satisfying. 


Spicy Peanut Stir Fry

1 chicken breast, sliced
2 cups of chopped veggies of choice. 
(Broccoli, carrots, celery, peppers, squash, and onion are my favorites)
2 T sesame oil, divided
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 T natural peanut butter
1 tsp molasses
1 squirt siracha..to taste
1/4 cup peanuts
1 handful chopped cilantro
salt, pepper, garlic and ginger powder to taste

Add 1 T of sesame oil to a hot pan or wok. Once it is hot, add the chicken and cook over high to sear it to golden perfection. Turn the heat to medium hight and throw in the veggies. Stir as you fry until they are crisp tender, or 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, and ginger.

In a small bowl, mix the remaining sesame oil, the soy sauce, molasses, peanut butter and siracha. Pour over the meat and veggies and stir to combine. Lastly, add the peanuts and the cilantro.
