Chicken Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce

I use this dish for a weekday meal that looks and tastes great, but isn’t a big hassle to make. Personally, I love peanut sauce and this variation is incredibly easy to make. You use peanut butter to make it.  You can make the real deal using peanuts, but that’s for another post my friends, we want quick and easy here.

Get your favorite vegetable mix from the grocery store, you know the kind that’s already chopped up and mixed in a bag. I promise you will enjoy this recipe and so will your family.
