Default Thai peanut chicken

Good morning. Happy Thursday. It's raining here and I am so not looking forward to traffic. Getting home last night took forever. On the other hand, we need the rain and I love Fall.

Someone asked the other night, after I said how much I liked my dinner, how to make it. I tried to find which thread I pulled it from so I could post a link...had no luck.
So here it is. I'd give credit if I could...it is from an IP board somewhere


PEANUT BUTTER STIR FRY
• 1 teaspoons cornstarch OPTIONAL (adds 10 calories and 2 carbs, 0 sugar, 0 fat, 0 protein)
• 1/4 cup chicken broth
• 2 TBSP walden farms peanut butter
• 1 tablespoons braggs amino acid or soy sauce
• dash ground ginger
• dash salt & pepper
• 1- 8 ounce boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
• 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
• 1/4 cup chopped vidalia onion
• 1/4 cup thinly sliced sweet orange peppers
• 1/4 cup thinly sliced sweet red peppers
• 1/4 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
• 1 teaspoon minced garlic
In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients until smooth, will be a little lumpy....but will get smooth in the pan; set aside.
In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken in 1and1/2 teaspoons oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
Stir-fry onion and peppers in remaining oil for 3 minutes until soft but not caramelized. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 3-4 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken; heat through.

I changed up veggies a little - used peppers, mushrooms, and cabbage. Cabbage feels a little like noodles.

Enjoy.

Good morning, Lisa I spent this morning reading through the wealth of information you post every morning. Wow wish I would have done that a lot sooner!!! Thank you for your persistence and help on this site

I've been doing great on IP averaging 3.6 lbs to 4lbs a week. My coach says I'm her poster child on week 9 down 38.6 lbs. funny how I give my weight including the point something everytime now lol this week had that stomach bug and lost 5.2 in one week not a good loss got worried about health and hydration being sick. All better.

Love this site and enjoy reading and following a lot of your posts everyday. Decided today to join in a bit. Not doing all my usual cooking this week recovering from being sick and feeling a bit blah ;( but happy Wednesday all thank you for the support you give me everyday with your sharing!!

Hooray for the moved "turtle ticker" Lisa!

I just got off work and need to go to sleep. BUT I am also almost out of veggies, so I really should go to the store. When supplies are low is when temptation rears its ugly head. So, I may as well have one more cup of coffee and drive to the produce store as soon as the kiddos leave for school. I will probably rest easier that way anyhow, knowing there are fresh cukes in fridge! LOL

Yum
Xanthan gum can be used instead of cornstarch for a thickener

Can you put it in the recipe thread so it can be re-found again?

Hi everyone! I am back, I was on IP from Aug 19 to Sept 17th when I was hospitalized and had surgery and had to go off of IP. I am now going back on, it has been much harder to get back into it the second time, the upside is the three weeks I was off I did not gain any wait, can't say I lost any, but did not gain!

Good morning IPers!

Week 13 and down another 2.4 lbs! I am now exactly 10.1 lbs away from Onderland, and 60 lbs away from goal!! No bite or taste of anything would bring me the same satisfaction I am feeling right now!

Hope everyone has a great OP day!

It's weigh in day and Aunt Flo showed up. hopefully I still show a loss. My PMS hasn't been that bad but I am feeling a little bloated. Today I'm going to tell my coach that I'm switching to the alternatives. I just can't keep up the cost of the program. $85 a week has drained the **** out of my pocket. I'm sure it's not going to go very well!

Good luck on both the weigh in and the "break-up."

Good luck with your WI and the break up - hope both go well!

Happy Thursday! Only a half day at work today for me - my son has a right after school volleyball tournament at another school, that his school isn't providing transportation for, thanks <sigh>. So, I decided to take the afternoon to pick up a few more things at Costco for Thanksgiving this weekend and maybe clean up a few things in the yard.

I think the TOM bloat disappeared - I stepped on the scale last night (yes, I know, I shouldn't but I just *felt* different) and a definite drop happened so I can't wait to WI next week. Wait, did I actually just say that?

Have a great day everyone!

Jo

Good morning everyone!

Feeling pretty good today. TMJ pain is still giving me fits, but I am keeping it under control with anti inflammatory meds. Had grilled hamburgers last night with sauteed mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. I used grapeseed oil and added chicken stock repeatedly to keep them from browning. The result was a delicious tender pile of veggies to put on our burgers, I guess it was my own version of philly steak burger!

Sonolady, just wanted to say "good morning sunshine"! Thanks for the nice words last night.

Sunshine and 70 today. After our early winter storm last Friday it has been a beautiful Fall week!
