This is a great weeknight dinner recipe. It is healthy with chicken, fresh vegetables and peanuts, and does not require any chopping at all. At my local grocery store, carrots and sugar snap peas are sold in a bag together in the produce section, in the perfect size for the recipe. Exactly what you need to help get your family through a busy week! Serves 3-4.
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 lb. fresh chicken breast tenderloins
1 cup fresh baby carrots
1 cup sugar snap peas
1/2 cup peanuts
1/3 cup Thai peanut sauce (I prefer the one made by Target).
Hot cooked rice or other grain for serving
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add carrots and sugar cnap peas to pan, and saute for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to medium low, add peanuts to pan, and cook for 3 minutes. Add peanut sauce to pan and cook, stirring frequently, for another 3 minutes.
