This is converted from a peanut sauce recipe that was originally meant to be served cold. I thought it was better warm. you can serve this dish with just about any grain. I suggest rice noodles. It tastes rich and hearty. This could also be done with tofu in place of the chicken for vegetarians.

- 2 heads broccoli, plus the stalk chopped
- 4 green onions, white part only, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced

- 3.Add blended sauce to a fry pan, add broccoli and chicken, cover, and cook until chicken is done. Before serving add cranberries and nuts.
OMG this was DELICIOUS! I actually used peanut butter instead of almond butter because it's what I had. I also added a seeded, chopped fresh chili pepper to the sauce and I left out the fish sauce, too, but otherwise I followed the instructions. It was KILLER! My boyfriend raved and raved! Since going GF and DF, I've been exploring new recipes and this one is totally a keeper! Wide (pad thai) style rice noodles were perfect.
Delicious! I loved everything about it. The taste was flavourful & exoctic. A strong marriage of almond and coconut flavor comes through in this dish ending the exploratory journey with a hint of lemon. Perfect! Add more spice, I thought mine could use a little more kick, but I think that is a personal choice. True to time & elegant. I served mine mixed in with rice noodle and broccoli sprinkled with toasted almond slices. Chicken on the side with a drizzle of sauce. Beautiful.Elegant. Worth a try.
