I added about 4 oz. of sliced Baby bella mushrooms in wit the chicken and garlic. Also slice the green onions on a bias with some length to them for presentation purposes. Served it with rice made with low sodium chicken stock. Q

Delicious and very easy to make stirfry! I substituted cashews for the peanuts and red pepper flakes for the cayenne, and it came out great! I like REALLY spicy stirfry, and this did not disappoint. Great recipe!

My husband and I really liked this dish. I neglected to notice the title "spicy" peanut chicken stir-fry...it really is very spicy. I served with rice and that helped cut down the spice some but next time I prepare this dish I will half the amount of cayenne. I also added a little garlic salt to the chicken while it stir-fired. Delicious dish and I will make it again!
