Thai Peanut Chicken

 So at work last week Nate said that i should try to make Thai food.... so i found this recipe from Vons and it was pretty good, i tweaked it of course with stuff that i had...
- 2 cups uncooked white rice
- 4 cups water
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Chicken Breast or Tenderloins- cut into thin strips
- 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
- 1 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root
- 3/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1/3 cup dry-roasted peanuts (chopped)

Cook rice in a rice cooker, or however you cook your rice. (if I didn't have a rice cooker i wouldn't know what to do, lol) 

In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, peanut butter, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Add chicken, garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is golden on the outside, about 5 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium, and add green onion, chopped peanuts, and the peanut butter mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until broccoli is tender, and chicken is cooked through. If mixture becomes too thick just add a little water. Serve over rice.

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
