Sweet Peanut Chicken Stir Fry

I created this dish one night a few weeks ago when I was craving stir fry, but wanted a sweet and peanut flavored sauce.  I just kept mixing ingredients together for the sauce until it tasted like what I was imagining.  I LOVE this sauce!  This was also a great way to use up some carrots, broccoli, and celery from the vegetable bin.  I normally wouldn’t have thrown celery into a stir fry, but it added a great crunch.  You could also throw some peanuts in for even more crunch, but I didn’t have any on hand.  This is definitely a dish I’ll be making again!

Chicken Peanut Stir Fry

recipe by me!


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 2-3 cups of vegetables (I used a mix of carrots, celery, and broccoli)
  • peanuts (optional)

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Add to skillet and cook until done.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, red-pepper flakes, peanut butter, rice vinegar, ginger, and honey.  Whisk until smooth.  Add to skillet, and cook with chicken for 3 minutes.

Add vegetables to skillet, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.  Serve over rice.
