I love making a good hearty stir-fry for my family. It is a wonderful way to get your kids to eat their vegetables-especially when they are coated in a delicious sauce! I hope you enjoy my take on a Thai inspired stir fry.

|Ingredients for a delicious stir-fry sauce|
4 boneless chicken breasts-cut into strips

1 cup carrots-cut into bite size pieces
2 cups sugar snap peas
1 cup broccoli florets
1 medium onion-sliced in strips
1 cup chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste
4 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic-diced
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp lemongrass paste (look in fresh produce area of your local grocery store)
1 tbsp ginger paste (look in fresh produce area of your local grocery store)
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp fresh cilantro-chopped

Add the remaining chicken broth and stir for a couple more minutes. Finally add the sauce and stir continuously until the sugar snap peas become bright green and tender.
