¼ cup (60 mL) peanut butter
3 tbsp (45 mL) oyster sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) each soy sauce and hot Chinese chili garlic sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil
½ cup (125 mL) water
½ tsp (2 mL) cornstarch

Stir Fry

2 tbsp (30 mL) peanut or vegetable oil, divided
1 lb (500 g) skinless boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into thin strips
3 cups (750 mL) bite-sized broccoli florets
4 mini or baby bok choy, washed and halved or quartered
1 tbsp (15 mL) minced ginger
2 tbsp (30 mL) coarsely chopped peanuts


In a medium bowl, stir sauce ingredients together until cornstarch is dissolved. Set aside

Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and stir until golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Set aside in a bowl.

To the same pan, add remaining oil, then broccoli. Stir continuously for 2 minutes, adding about 2 tbsp (30 mL) of water after 1 minute. Add bok choy and ginger, and stir until barely wilted, adding 1 to 2 tbsp (15 to 30 mL) water if it begins to stick. Return chicken to pan. Stir sauce, then add to pan. Stir continuously until vegetables and chicken are coated and sauce thickens. Serve sprinkled with peanuts.
