So here is what is blooming right now in our yard...
Julie mentioned that I haven't posted a recipe in a while so wanted to share this easy recipe from Real Simple....
Satay Chicken Stir-Fry (serves 4)
2 tbl peanut butter
2 tbl soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes (okay, I just use the squirt bottle kind!)
1/3 c. chicken broth
3 tbl light brown sugar
1/2 c. coconut milk (that's half the can, what will you do with the leftovers?!? I just dump it all in!)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tbl oil
1 long red chili, thinly sliced (haven't had one yet on hand to use)
1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger (yes, you guessed it, I use powder)
1 clove garlic crushed
2 cups snow peas (I use skinny long beans)
2 cups broccoli
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
I usually toss in a can of baby corn because the kids love it.
In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, broth, sugar and coconut milk. Cut the chicken into one inch wide strips. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, chili, ginger, and garlic -- and I usually add some onion slices since they are so healthy for you. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is gold, about 5 min. Add the snow peas and broccoli and cook until the vegetables are just tender, about 1 min. Add the peanut sauce and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly and the chicken has cooked through, about 3 min. Garnish with the cilantro and serve over cooked rice.
I am working on another Victorian Elements card (or two) that I can't wait to share with you!
