Chicken Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

This was a (modified) random find from Cooking Light a few years ago, but makes for a good and easy meal.

  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil, divided
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (or less if you don’t like spicy)- 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup unsalted cashews

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 1 minute on each side. Remove chicken from pan; cut into thin slices. Add onion, broccoli, and bell pepper to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes; add garlic. Stir-fry another 2 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium-high. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon oil, coconut milk, and next 7 ingredients (through cumin) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add chicken and coconut milk mixture to pan; cook 30 seconds. Sprinkle evenly with cashews.

Serves 4.
