Satay Chicken Stir-Fry with Snow Peas & Cilantro

Here comes another Real Simple recipe! I just might be obsessed with their meals, but I can’t help it because they are all so delicious, easy to make, and easy on the wallet.  And because I love making asian food, this had to be tried.  It scored very high in my (and my roommates’) books.

Satay Chicken Stir-Fry

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 long red chili, thinly sliced
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, broth, sugar, and coconut milk.
  2. Cut the chicken into 1-inch-wide strips. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, chili, ginger, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is golden, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the snow peas and broccoli and cook until the vegetables are just tender, about 1 minute. Add the peanut sauce and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly and the chicken has cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  4. Garnish with the cilantro. Serve over cooked rice, if desired.
