Yesterday, as we were debating over who is cooking so much, Cookies said, he wishes we had a good asian restaurant in the neighbourhood, cos he feels for egg rolls and sweet & sour chix… Unfortunately we don’t have even one. There are 5 or …

As I’ve mentioned probably 43,000 times before, we are trying to eat relatively healthy and different. Because of that we have couple rules about weekly meals, like at least 1x vegetarian, 1x fish, 2x meat and definitely soup for 2 days. Mostly I can rotate …
I don’t know if it’s working LOL cos I don’t have a scale but I continue to cut carbs from my diet – Cookies too. Actually he wants so much to eat something other than an apple, some yogurt and yes… peas with ketchup 0_o, that he doesn’t complain anymore, to not spook me LOL. I love it actually, cos I can put even garlic into the food and he won’t complain 0_o. Though this meal he likes as much as I do (rare), mostly because of the simplicity and we feel we eat healthy 😉
YAY!!! Comments are available now and I now have become a Thai food “expert”
Yes, Cookies sometimes shows some spark of genius and he managed to enable comments under the posts 0_o so feel free to use them – just pretty please… no trolling!!! 😉
And how I became a Thai food “expert”? As always the process was easy… I found the recipe in the internet I think the link was on The Kitchn as usual 😉 This time I almost made it to the T, just added a little water cos it seemed a little too thick and I worried that the broccoli won’t get soft. Was it easy? YES!! Did it take a lot of time? Yes, but only because I’m clumsy. It took me several minutes to cut everything and change humongous broccoli FLORET into tiny little florets 😀
Ah and Madzia? 😉 your hatred towards peanut butter should evaporate 😉 it added spectacular flavour to the chicken. I can’t emphasize how good this recipe is. Easy and abso – f-lutely fantastic!
Amazing Peanut Butter Chicken
2 1/3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 2/3 teaspoons white wine vinegar or 1 2/3 teaspoons rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil or 1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 1/3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon garlic
1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger root
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 1/3 cups broccoli florets
1/3 green pepper,
1/3 red pepper
1/8 cup dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, peanut butter, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
Heat oil in a skillet or wok over high heat. Add chicken (cut into thin strips), garlic (shredded) and ginger (shredded), and cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is golden on the outside, about 5 minutes. (don’t worry that whole time chicken looks like dead squid – it will brown sooner or later 0_o)
Reduce heat to medium, and add everything cut into strips: green onion, broccoli, peppers, peanuts, and the peanut butter mixture. Cook, stirring often, until broccoli is tender, and chicken is cooked through. It might be too dry, then add some water or soy sauce if you think dish is not salty enough.
Serve over rice or rice noodles.
And until next time, take care of yourself, and each other!

P.S.Cookies statement about the dish: 9.5 out of 10 the smorgasbord of tastes per spoonful in my mouth was rather outlandish.
