Recipe from Sunset

Betsy Dasenko, a reader from Corvallis, Oregon, submitted this recipe, which makes a terrific packed lunch, side dish, or potluck contribution. We used Skippy brand peanut butter for a smooth, slightly sweet sauce. You can use natural peanut butter if you prefer, but you may want to add a pinch of sugar so the flavors are balanced.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (any kind)
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves


Total: 25 Minutes

  1. Mix first 6 ingredients and 1/3 cup water in a bowl. Toss with remaining ingredients.
