How to make Thai Chicken Peanut Rice Skillet

Thai Chicken Peanut Rice Skillet combines all of my favorite flavors from meals like Thai Chicken Noodles and Zucchini Noodle Pad Thai Salad. Sauté chicken in a skillet with sesame oil and soy sauce. Then add carrots, cabbage, red bell pepper, rice, soy sauce and lime juice. Simmer for 18 minutes and then add fresh organicgirl Rebel Greens. The greens are baby bok choy leaves – an excellent source of vitamin C with a mild taste and texture. They cook really fast so this rice skillet is an easy way to sneak greens into your diet.

How to cook baby bok choy

Baby bok choy cooks in less than 3 minutes! Add it during the last three minutes of cooking to your favorite meal or sauté it in a skillet with other fresh veggies. Remove from the heat when the leaves are bright green but wilted. The best part about greens is that you can generally substitute any greens for any other variety. While I love the organicgirl Rebel Greens in this rice skillet recipe, you can also use organicgirl SUPERGREENS!, Protein Greens or any of your other favorite organicgirl greens.

How to make Thai Peanut Sauce

Thai Peanut Sauce is made with a few simple ingredients including soy sauce, honey, lime juice, red hot pepper flakes and peanut butter. Simply whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl and add water, a tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. This sauce can be used in a variety of recipes or even for dipping.

How to cook rice in a skillet

Rice is versatile and can be cooked in a skillet on its own or with other ingredients. Everything for this recipe cooks in one pan. Yes, even the rice! In step 2, add the rice and the other vegetables to the skillet with the liquid. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. The rice will cook over a low simmer.
