honey peanut chicken.
Here’s what I love about stir frys: You kinda can’t mess them up. Unless, of course, you forget some major ingredient like garlic or chicken. In that case you might just need to pick up the phone and call for takeout. But don’t do that, because it costs way more than making it at home for $5.39. Just follow this easy recipe, which doesn’t have many ingredients anyway so you should be good to go. Enjoy!
Honey Peanut Chicken
What You’ll Need:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1.5 pounds), cubed ($2.98 at $1.99/lb)
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce ($.21 at $.07/tablespoon)
2 tablespoons honey ($.34 at $.17/tablespoon)
juice from one lime ($.25 per)
1 clove minced garlic ($.03 at $.03 per clove)
1.5 tablespoons natural peanut butter ($.10 at $1.69/jar)
1/2 teaspoons curry powder (trace)
Pre-cooked veggies (I used green beans, about a half pound) ($1.00 at $1.99/lb)
Brown rice ($.48 at $.99/lb)
Mix all marinade ingredients in a bowl, then add chicken and marinate 1-2 hours.
Cook chicken in the marinade over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Reduce heat and add any precooked veggies (green beans, zucchini, broccoli, etc) until cooked through. Serve on top of cooked brown rice.
