Spicy Peanut Chicken


2 tablespoon peanut oil
2 lb boneless chicken breast-cut into bite sized pieces
2 medium red bell pepper, chopped
3 cups chicken broth
4 teaspoons soy sauce
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
¾ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
3 TBS fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 bunch chopped green onions
1 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts
Salt and Pepper

*use less Cayenne (or none at all) if you don’t like it spicy!

Heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. Place chicken in the wok, and cook until juices run clear. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Mix in red bell pepper, and continue cooking until tender. Add in peanut butter, blend well, let simmer 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix together the chicken broth, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, cayenne pepper and cornstarch. Pour into the chicken mixture. Toss in green onions (reserving some for garnish). Continue to cook and stir 5 minutes, until slightly thickened. Mix in ¾ cup of the peanuts. Garnish each plate with the reserved peanuts and green onions
