Peanut Chicken Stir Fry

Peanut Chicken Stir Fry

This Easy Peanut Chicken Stir Fry is one of my go to meals when I’m not quite sure what to make.

This dish is filled with colorful veggies, delicious chicken and noodles covered in a peanut sauce. What’s not to love. I can’t wait to share this dish with you!

Have I told you how easy this Peanut Chicken Stir Fry is?

All you need to do is whip up this peanut sauce, marinate your chicken, chop some veggies, cook some noodles and then cook everything together. Easy peezy I tell you!!

It’s even easier if you prep your veggies ahead of time to make this meal super quick. Knowing how busy the week can get I would highly recommend prepping some of it ahead of time.

I hope everyone is enjoying Fall!

The weather has been wonderful here, and the leaves are really starting to show their beauty. I am truly looking forward to the change in season. The cool weather brings such a comforting feeling.

Who doesn’t love to be cozy indoors. With perhaps some blankets and a fire? Yes, please!! Plus we are awaiting the arrival of our newest blessing. Let me tell you, it’s been a long road!

The garden has really taken a backseat this year

Sure we planted things but we haven’t really spent much time tending to it. In the years past I would spend hours in the garden daily. This year that wasn’t the case. I also didn’t can anything this year.

The garden is currently filled with weeds and all the left over plants that thankfully gave us such wonderful harvests this past summer. A complete overhaul is in order and lastly the planting of our garlic patch before the cold really sets in. Then I’m truly ready for the weather to change.

What’s not to love about fall

The colors, sweaters, and just being cozy. Fall really gets me in the mood for cooking. You know, all those meals that fill your house with all those wonderful smells. Those meals that make you feel really good!

I’ve uploaded a couple of those recipes on my YouTube channel if your interested in trying them. One we really love is our Hot Beef Sandwiches, and my mom’s spaghetti. I’ll leave a link below ⬇️

My husband just made “his” version of spaghetti and meatballs this past weekend and it was delicious! And yes, it did fill our home with that amazing, comforting smell.

You can throw everything into your Nutribullet or a blender

After it’s blended taste it. Make sure it has the right balance. I’m always making changes to mine. If you feel like it needs more sweetness sprinkle in some more brown sugar or a squeeze of honey. Also feel free to add less soy sauce if you’re watching your sodium.

Making homemade peanut sauce

Now that your peanut sauce has been made you’ll want to chop your chicken into smaller piece and get it marinating. Just add your chicken to a shallow dish and top it with just enough peanut sauce coat the chicken. Cover and place it in the fridge while you prep your veggies.

Marinating peanut chicken

Before you start cooking your chicken make sure you start your noodles.

Cooking spaghetti noodles

Add 2 spoonfuls of coconut oil to a pan and start adding your chicken. Cook until brown. Then remove it from the pan onto a plate and set it aside so you can start cooking your veggies.

In the same pan add another dollop of coconut oil. Add in your peppers, broccoli and sugar snap peas. Or any vegetable you choose. Cook for a couple mins. At this point your noodles should be ready. Add your chicken back into the pan and mix everything together.

Add some noodles and peanut sauce and toss everything together. Let it cook for a 5-10 mins and just before serving you can garnish the top with some sliced green onions, cilantro and peanuts if you’d like.
