Chicken Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce...

Posted by The Colbys... written by Erin |

1TBSP Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, finely sliced
1 bag of fresh stir fry veggies (my bag had snow peas, broccoli and carrots)
1/2 small head of cabbage, finely sliced
colorful peppers (I used those little mini peppers that are all sorts of colors. YUM)
1/2 C water
2 Chicken Breasts (prepared as you like)
Thai Peanut Sauce 1/2 bottle (I seriously just bought a bottle)

Green Onions, chopped

Prepare chicken as you like (crock pot chicken, chopped. or saute some sliced chicken breast.)
Warm Olive Oil on Med heat and saute the garlic
Add all the cut-up veggies, salt and pepper it, turn up the heat.
When it's really hot, add the water and put a top on it. (This kind of quick steams them so they get really bright and crunchy, and not soggy)
Add Chicken and Sauce (I used 1/2 bottle)
continue to cook to your liking (again, I like it a little crunchy and VERY colorful, so it shouldn't be long)
top with green onions before serving.

optional:  put over rice.  But we're cutting our carbs and it totally doesn't need it!
Wrap leftovers in a tortilla for a Thai Peanut Chicken Wrap... OH there's some carbs.
