Number of Servings: 2


    8 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast; cubed
    3/4 cup mushroom chunks
    3/4 cup bell pepper chunks (red and/or green)
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup sliced & halved canned water chestnuts
    2 tbsp. reduced-sodium/light soy sauce
    1 1/2 tbsp. rice vinegar
    2 tsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetene r, granulated
    1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
    1 tbsp. chopped dry-roasted unsalted peanuts (5 or so nuts?)
    1 tsp. minced garlic
    1 tsp. red chili sauce (add more for extra spice!)
    salt, pepper and red pepper flakes; to taste


Begin by combining 2 tbsp. of cold water with soy sauce, vinegar, Splenda, cornstarch and chili sauce -- stir well until all ingredients have dissolved. Set sauce aside.

Spray a large pan or wok with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add chicken, mushrooms, bell peppers, celery, onion, garlic and 2 tbsp. of water. Stirring occasionally, cook for about 5 minutes.

Once chicken is almost fully cooked but still tender, add peanuts and water chestnuts to the pan or wok. Raise heat to high, give sauce a stir, and add it to the pan/wok as well.

Mix entire dish until all ingredients are coated in sauce, and the sauce is hot and thick. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Enjoy! MAKES 2 SERVINGS.

    I enjoyed this dish a lot. I had mix of wild rice and quinoa instead of white rice and I added bean sprouts and frozen broccoli. It was not a recipe I would say I can't wait to make it again but it was good and healthy. - 6/10/13
