Satay Chicken Stir-Fry with Snow Peas and Cilantro

Got this great recipe from a magazine. While the baby was napping (wow!) Juliette and I made this. I let her help mix the sauce with the peanut butter and lime juice & coconut..yum!

Be careful when cutting the chili pepper---don't touch your face! I washed my hands but apparently not well enough-I itched my mouth-my lips and tongue burned for 20 minutes.

This is delicious and nice and spicy.


2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes
1/3 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut milk
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 long red chili, thinly sliced
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 cups snow peas
2 cups broccoli florets

In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, broth, sugar, and coconut milk. Cut the chicken into 1-inch-wide strips. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, chili, ginger, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is golden, about 5 minutes. Add the snow peas and broccoli and cook until the vegetables are just tender, about 1 minute. Add the peanut sauce and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly and the chicken has cooked through, about 3 minutes. Garnish with the cilantro. Serve over cooked rice. Makes 4 servings

You can easily substitute beef or shrimp for the chicken in this recipe. For beef, follow the same directions. For shrimp, cook all the vegetables, then add the shrimp, cook for 1 minute or until pink, add the peanut sauce, and finish the recipe from there.
