Chicken Stir-Fry with Peanut Miso Sauce

Cooking for one can sometimes seem like a daunting task. That’s why meals like stir fries are worth revisiting after your college years - you only use what you eat and you still have leftover ingredients for new dishes throughout the week. Try using a more unique sauce than the traditional Teriyaki style one. Our Peanut Miso sauce combines sweet and savoury ingredients with a hit of fresh ginger and it’s packed with protein. Make cooking for one fun again!

Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Steps

  1. Begin by making the stir-fry sauce by combining the peanut butter, hoisin, miso, lime, vinegar, sugar and sambal oelek. Set aside.

  2. Prepare all of the vegetables. Heat the canola oil in a non-stick skillet over high heat. Sear the chicken until golden on the outside.

  3. Add the vegetables and stir continuously over high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Add ¼ cup (60 mL) of water and continue to stir. Add the sauce, remove from heat and stir.

  4. Plate the stir-fry with the rice and top with the peanuts and the sliced green onion.
