This takes 15 to 20 minutes to prepare. You can have everything ready to go and just cook it right before serving.

1-1/2 cups coconut milk
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
2 tablespoons peanut oil
4 scallions, chopped
½ cup roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)

In a small bowl, whisk together coconut milk, peanut butter, ginger and pepper; set aside or store in the refrigerator if saving for later. In a large wok, heat the oil over medium heat. Sauté chicken until no longer pink – about 10 minutes. Add scallions and sauté briefly. Stir in sauce and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Sprinkle on peanuts, if using, and serve. Also good with rice – white, jasmine or basmati. Try this ginger-cilantro rice if you are feeling motivated.
