1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh lime rind (about 2 limes)
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 tablespoon peanut oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut diagonally into thin strips

Preparation

Combine cornstarch and water in a medium bowl, stirring until smooth. Add coconut milk and next 8 ingredients, stirring well. Set aside.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large, deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until done. Remove chicken from pan, and set aside. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to pan.

Add peas and next 3 ingredients to pan; sauté 3 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Stir in coconut milk mixture. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until thick. Return chicken to pan; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly heated.

Spoon chicken mixture into bowls; top with peanuts, cilantro, and lime wedges. Serve immediately with rice.
