Cilantro Chicken Stir-Fry 

Oh boy, was this good! I am such a sucker for cilantro so when I saw this I just had to make it. Also, the peanuts were a surprising, but great addition to the stir fry, and we all enjoyed it. 


– 2 tsp. Olive oil 

– 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts 

– 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts 

– 1 red bell pepper, diced 

– 4 cloves garlic, minced 

– 1 tsp. ground ginger 

– 1 tbsp. soy sauce 

– 2 tsp. rice vinegar 

– 1 tsp. Sriracha sauce 

– 1 tsp. sesame oil 

– 1 tsp. cornstarch 

– 1 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped 


Begin by heating up the olive oil in a large frying pan preferably with tall sides over medium- high heat. Addin the chicken and cook for three minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Add the peanuts, red bell pepper, garlic, and ginger to the pan with the chicken. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. 

While the chicken is cooking, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, Stiracha, sesame oil, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the sauce to the skillet and cook, stirring until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken. 

Remove the pan from the heat and add in the chopped cilantro. Stir to combine and serve over rice with lime wedges on the side. I always use brown rice in my dishes and it is delicious!
