My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. The veggies were easy to prepare; I had 3 small zucchini that I just chopped into coins, and then I chopped the red pepper into strips. I would recommend trying to keep thickness consistent so the veggies cook at the same rate. The recipe doesn't say when to add sauce, but I put it in when I returned the chicken to the pan. I don't have a food processor, but I used my Magic Bullet to make the sauce, which worked great. I think a good blender would work as well. We will definitely make this again!
This is delightful! The sauce was perfect - I made it just as written - the only thing I added was a dash of crushed red pepper. The zucchini and bell pepper are great in this and I added just a few carrots. Even my 9-year old, who was skeptical about it, said the meal was "better than I thought it would be." (The only thing she didn't like was the extra heat I added to it!) The dish is beautiful and delicious. Thanks for posting!
An excellent stir-fry recipe ~ Tasty, healthful, and easy to make! I reduced the cayenne to just a dash and replaced the red bell pepper with a couple handfuls parboiled fresh green beans. Then I added the sauce to the pan along with the chicken in step #3. The lime flavor was somewhat pronounced, so next time I may reduce the juice by a teaspoonful. I liked that this dish came together very quickly. It made a really great meal ~ Thanks so much!

My name is Sara. I live in Portland, OR and I work at a retirement community in the Wellness department. I love to cook! I occasionally do cooking demonstrations at work and typically have over 40 people! This is a lot considering I have no professional training, and I never really cooked at all until a few years after high school. I try to focus on cooking healthy foods, though I believe if you're going to indulge you might as well go all the way (case in point: Black Forest Cake)! I'm always looking for new and unusual recipes and my main source is the net, currently 'zaar. I've been more successful here than anywhere else! I also subscribe to Light & Tasty (part of Taste of Home) and I highly recommend that magazine, it really proves that you can eat healthy and enjoy it. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"><img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
