Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 TBS peanut oil
  • ½ onion minced
  • 1 cup red or green pepper diced
  • 1 8 oz can water chestnuts drained and minced

For the Sauce:

To serve

  • ¼ cup peanuts crushed.
  • Lettuce or your favorite Asian salad

Instructions

  • Whisk together sauce ingredients until well combined. If you use a firmer peanut butter you may need to microwave the mixture for 30-60 seconds in order to melt it and ensure everything is well-mixed.
  • Heat 2 TBS peanut oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add ground chicken.
  • Cook until some pieces are starting to brown. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes or until the onion is becoming translucent.
  • Add the peppers and water chestnuts and cook about 5 minutes or until peppers are becoming soft.
  • Add sauce and simmer on low heat until the chicken and veggies are evenly coated and everything is heated through.
  • Serve in lettuce leaves, on top of your favorite Asian salad, or over noodles or rice!

Notes

Notes on ingredients: 
  • Ground chicken: Finely diced chicken breasts are a great substitute for ground chicken!
  • Peanut Oil: Any oil can be used here if you don't keep peanut on hand or if you have a peanut allergy. I recommend olive oil or avocado oil!
  • Soy Sauce: If you have a soy allergy you can substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce. 
  • Hoisin sauce: **be sure to choose a gluten-free hoisin sauce to keep this recipe gluten-free, like this one.
  • Peanut Butter: If you have a peanut allergy any nut or seed butter could work here, but peanut butter definitely gives the best results!
