Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

3 Chicken breasts
1 red or green bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 T garlic
3/4 C carrots, chopped
1 C celery, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 C whole almonds
1 head Romain lettuce hearts

Sauce:
1 T peanut butter
2 t hoisin sauce
2 t oyster sauce
2 T soy sauce
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 t rice wine vinegar
1 t sesame oil
pinch red pepper flakes

1. Cut up your chicken breasts into small pieces (I use a sharp pair of kitchen scissors) and cook in a hot skillet with about 1 T olive oil. Add a bit of salt and pepper into the pan as well. Cook until the chicken pieces are a nice golden color.
2. While your chicken is cooking, chop up all your veggies so they are about the same size.
3. When the chicken is done remove it from the pan and place it on a plate. Add another T of olive oil to the pan and throw in your veggies. Cook for about 15 minutes on medium high heat, or until the veggies are crisp tender. You don't want to over cook them.
4. Add all of the sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisk it together until smooth. Have a little taste....it's super good!
5. Add the chicken, sauce, and almonds into the skillet with the veggies. Stir everything around until it becomes incorporated. Cook it until everything is heated through. Just 2-3 minutes should be plenty.
6. Serve inside a nice lettuce leaf, with rice on the side.
