Chicken Stir-Fry With Spicy Peanut Sauce

“If you like spicy peanut sauce, you'll like this dish. The sauce is smooth and creamy with a bit of kick. When stir-frying, I like to marinate the meat to add a bit more depth of flavor. I used chicken for this recipe but am sure it would also go well with pork or shrimp (of course taking into account varying cooking times of different meats).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly whisk together ingredients for marinade (except olive oil) and marinate sliced chicken for 30 minutes at room temperature or 1-2 hours refrigerated.
  2. While chicken is marinating, thoroughly whisk together ingredients for sauce in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tbs. oil in wok (or large skillet) at medium-high heat. Drain chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Set cooked chicken aside, covered.
  4. Reduce temperature to medium heat and heat 1 tbs. oil in wok. Cook vegetables for 10 minutes or until tender but crisp.
  5. Return cooked chicken to pan and toss with vegetables.
  6. Make a well in the center of the wok and pour sauce into it, stirring constantly. The sauce will thicken slightly. If the sauce is too thick to your taste, add water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  7. Toss sauce, chicken and vegetables in wok until sauce is thoroughly incorporated.
  8. Serve over rice or rice noodles.
