Easy Weeknight Stir-Fry

When we get a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, we often have leftovers.  Sometimes I will use them to make chicken salad, sometimes I will toss in a large garden salad and sometimes I will make a quick stir-fry.


This stir-fry was one of the best I have had in a long time!  It was so simple, I  couldn’t believe that it was so good!  When we get Pei Wei take-out, I always get extra order rice. An extra carton of brown rice is $.50 – how does one pass that up?  By having that rice and leftover chicken in the refrigerator, all I had to do for this meal was to quickly stir-fry the snow peas.

Thai Peanut Chicken Stir-Fry

  • 3-4 ounces chicken breast, cut up
  • 1/2 to 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup snow peas
  • 2 TBSP San-J Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce <—-This stuff is where IT is at!

1.  Saute snow peas briefly in a touch of extra virgin olive oil.

2.  Add cooked rice, chicken and 2 TBSP Thai peanut sauce.

3.  Cook until warm through.

4.  Enjoy!

I think the whole process took maybe 15 minutes and was the perfect meal to make after yoga class when I all wanted to do was melt into a chair.

**If you are using a rotisserie chicken, please check to make sure it is gluten-free.  Some stores offer gluten-free rotisserie (Costco), many don’t.

Don’t forget to head over to The FOGGY Awards and vote for Gluten-Free is Life aka. me!  You can vote once per day until April 30, 2012.  Thank you!!
