Chicken, veggies and rice with a peanut butter sauce, oh my!  Very quick, easy, and very tasty.  I decided to go with the frozen veggies in this recipe just to help speed it up a bit.  By all means if you want to use fresh, go ahead.  I usually just use the green, red peppers and onions mix.  You can use whatever kind you like the best.

We have been eating this at least once a week anymore.  It doesn’t help that both of us are peanut butter junkies and I do mean junkies.  We have even made these without the stir-fry veggies and wrapped them in Boston lettuce, which is also excellent.  You could even experiment a bit and try them over pasta too, which I’m sure would be great.

The biggest problem I’ve found with this recipe is, that’s its so good you cant help to think your eating something bad for you.  Which isn’t the case here.  Just make sure you use Natural Peanut Butter not regular peanut butter.  I highly recommend this quick, tasty and very healthy stir-fry recipe.

If this isn’t up your alley, take a look at some other baked chicken breast recipes.
