Spicy Peanut Chicken over Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by cellogirl2

This makes enough to freeze leftovers, which keep for up to a month. You can increase the crushed red pepper, if you like. A dollop of yogurt on top balances the spiciness.

I have this recipe from the Cooking Light magazine, submitted by Mary Cutrufello. I loved the recipe and give it five stars. My bf said 3 stars, and he ended up adding more peanut butter. I think it's delicious as written!
