Adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

Chicken and Veggie Mixture:

  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 large bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 (10 oz.) packages zucchini noodles (found in our produce department) or 2 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (about 2-3 cups)

 

Peanut Sauce:

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • cup honey
  • cup reduced sodium soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free)
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1-2 tsp. sriracha 

 

Optional Garnishes:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Cilantro
  • Peanuts
  • Green onion

 

Directions:

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp. of sesame oil and the garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots, cabbage and pepper slices. Cook until veggies are just tender, about 5 minutes. Add zucchini noodles and shredded chicken to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini and chicken are warm, about 3 minutes. Turn off stove and remove from heat. Set aside.
  2. Combine all of the peanut sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk constantly until the peanut butter has melted and everything is combined.
  3. Once the sauce is heated through, pour over chicken and veggie mixture. Toss everything around until combined. Serve topped with optional sesame seeds, cilantro, peanuts and green onions.
