Delicious and easy...even without the mushrooms.
Very Simple and tasty recipe. this recipe would also work well with beef and pork. Made for Football Pool season 2012 week 12 win.
Nice quick and easy stir-fry! I made 2 small changes: I had some zucchini that needed using so put that in place of the mushrooms, and I used crushed red pepper flakes instead of black pepper. The peanut sauce was just great with the chicken and veggies. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
