Number of Servings: 6


    1 T coconut milk
    1 T brown sugar
    2 T low-sodium soy sauce
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 t cumin
    1 lemon, juiced

    1/4 cup natural, no salt added peanut butter
    1 lemon, juiced
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 T hot curry paste (use mild if you don't like much heat)
    3 T low-sodium soy sauce
    1 T light coconut milk
    1/2-3/4 c water

    Vegetables and Chicken:
    16 oz chicken breast, boneless and skinless, diced into 3/4 inch cubes
    1 T peanut oil
    2 c carrots, shredded
    1 onion, sliced
    1 c mushrooms, sliced
    1 c broccoli florets
    1 c sugar snap peas
    1 red bell pepper, sliced


Prepare marinade by placing all ingredients in a glass dish. Toss diced chicken into the dish and coat in the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Prepare the sauce by combining all ingredients into a small saucepan. Start with 1/2 cup of warm water and add more if mixture seems thick. Place on the stove over low heat to warm. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, drain off excess marinade. Stir fry in 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a wok or flat bottomed pan. Stir fry over high heat until meat is completely cooked, remove from pan and reserve. While wok or flat bottomed pan is still hot, add onions and carrots. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms, broccoli, snap peas, pepper. Continue to stir fry for 3-4 minutes. Add chicken back into the wok along with the sauce. Heat until mixture for 1-2 minutes or until the chicken is hot.
Makes 6 two cup servings.

Editor's Cooking Notes:
For a complete meal, serve with brown rice or rice noodles.

If you're watching your sodium, reduce the amount of soy sauce, but keep in mind that it will affect the balance of flavors in the sauce.

We used all-natural peanut butter for a fresh taste and healthy dose of real nuts. Chef Meg served hers over rice noodles (95 calories per half-cup serving), but you could also serve this with brown rice.

    Any ideas about what to do with the remainder of a can of coconut milk? I's rather an expensive ingredient to only use 2 Tablespoons with few other recipes to use it in my rotation. Then other recipes I see using coconut milk tend to call for a whole can... What to do...? - 9/1/09

    Freeze it in an ice cube tray, then pop the cubes into a plastic bag and store them in the freezer. Pull out cubes each time you need them in a recipe.

    I made this tonight and it was awsome, very fresh and a nice balance between the spice and lemon flavor. Will be making this again and again. It is so much food for the calories too, I was STUFFED. - 9/2/09

    Great idea but 41% calories from fat!!!Healthier version: coconut milk is almost all fat (Trader Joe's light is 90% fat) - use low sodium chix broth instead. Second, I'm using half the chicken and half tofu to cut cholesterol in half. - 10/29/09

    Yummy yummy combination of flavors, peanuty, spicy, and lemony. I used a bag of frozen mixed stir fry veggies and some red curry powder instead of paste, just the right amount of spiciness for me.
    And thanks ChefMeg for the tip on freezing the rest of the coconut milk.
