Chicken Satay Stir-Fry
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Thai
Serves: 6
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce, plus 2 tbsp, divided
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter, plus 2 tbsp, divided
  • ¼ tsp hot sauce
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups cut vegetables, such as snow peas, red peppers and carrots
  • 2 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp chopped peanuts
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the canola oil, ⅓ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup peanut butter and hot sauce until smooth. Be patient, this will take a few minutes but it will be fully combined when you are done. Add the pieces of chicken breast and stir to coat. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour (this can marinate all day, if desired).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Once the pan is all warmed up, add the chicken, discarding any excess marinade. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan and toss well. Let cook for an additional 1 minute, then remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining soy sauce, peanut butter, seasoned rice vinegar and ground ginger until smooth.
  4. To serve: arrange chicken and vegetables on a platter and drizzle with prepared sauce. Sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts. This can be served over rice, rice noodles or other grains.
