I love a peanut sauce that has a balance of sweet, salty, spicy, and tangy flavors, and this one fulfills all of my cravings. It is amazing! It goes great with this simple chicken and broccoli stir-fry. You need to try it today!
- FOR THE PEANUT SAUCE:
- ½ cups Brown Sugar
- ½ cups Soy Sauce
- ½ cups Sweet Chili Sauce
- ½ cups Peanut Butter
- ¼ cups Lime Juice
- ¾ cups Water
- 2 teaspoons Cornstarch
- ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
- ⅛ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
- FOR THE STIR-FRY:
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, Divided
- 1 teaspoon Salt, Divided
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 3 whole Broccoli Crowns, Cut Into Florets
- 2 whole Chicken Breasts, Thinly Sliced
- FOR GARNISHING:
- Sliced Green Onions
- Chopped Salted Peanuts
Whisk all the ingredients for the peanut sauce together in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 minutes, whisking occasionally until it thickens.
Heat a separate frying pan or wok and add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add broccoli florets and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt. Stir-fry over high heat 3–4 minutes until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender. Remove broccoli to a platter.
Using the same pan, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and garlic to hot pan. Add chicken and stir-fry 3–4 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken to a platter.
Serve over cooked brown rice. Garnish with onions and peanuts if desired. Drizzle with delicious sauce.
