Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce

This is one of my hubbies FAVORITES! I actually REALLY love it too and it is SOOO easy! You gotta try it!

1 lbs chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup brown rice, uncooked
3 cups veggies cut into bite size pieces
(broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, green onions)
¼ cup peanuts, chopped (optional)

Peanut Sauce:
2 Tblsp creamy peanut butter
1 ½ Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp fresh garlic or ginger, minced
¼ cup water

Directions: Prepare rice. Prepare peanut sauce: place peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, garlic, ginger and water in microwave safe bowl. Microwave 30-60 seconds and then whisk until combine.
In a large skillet, heat oil at medium heat. Add chicken and sauté. Add veggies to pan and sauté in an additional 3-4 min. Serve over prepared rice and top with chopped peanuts, if desired.
