One night not so long after my husband and I were married we decided to give Chinese food a try at home. I can’t even remember what we attempted to make but needless to say it was memorable and not in a good way. Chinese night was an absolute disaster and we often laugh about it now especially when I pull out a Chinese themed recipe. After we gave this recipe a try I think that we may be more willing to give Chinese a try since this recipe turned out so good. Very simple to make and full of flavor.
First start off by sautéing the broccoli in 1 Tbsp. of oil on medium heat until tender. Once they are tender up them in a bowl and set aside.
Next add another Tbsp. oil to the same pan and cook the garlic and ginger for about two minutes or until golden in color. (I didn’t have ginger on hand so I omitted it and things turned out just fine) Add the chicken and sauté on medium heat until cooked through.
While the chicken is cooking make the sauce by adding hot water to the peanut butter. Whisk until well mixed and then add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Once the chicken is cooked add the broccoli and sauce to the pan and toss until thoroughly mixed. Add minced peanuts if you want and serve over rice.
