I have been crazy about my one pot meals the last couple weeks, why just last week I published my One Pot Southwest Quinoa. It is so nice to throw everything into one pot and boom dinner is ready. So today I am sharing a fun take on Pad Thai. I originally had the mindset that I wanted to make zoodle (zucchini noodles) pad thai, when developing the recipe I had a bunch of veggies, chicken, and zoodles ready to go. As I began to cook I realized that I had definitely cut up way to many vegetables, so many there wasn’t even room for the zoodles, and guess what? It was so stinking delicious, with a little modification Thai Peanut Chicken & Veggie Bowls were born.
These Thai Peanut Chicken & Veggie Bowls are full of protein, healthy vegetables, and a light & delicious sauce. Ready to go in about 20 minutes it is hard to think of a reason to not want to make these for dinner this week!
TIPS & TRICKS:
- Feel free to use precut cabbage and carrots
- You can totally switch up the vegetables if you feel inspired to do so
- This sauce is pretty light, if you want to spice it up more add more sriracha or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, make sure to squeeze some freshly cut lime on top, I think that really adds to the flavor
- 2 pounds chicken breast, sliced into strips
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 4 cups chopped cabbage (about 1/3 a large cabbage)
- 1 cup grated carrot (about 3 medium carrots)
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 4-5 green onions, sliced (plus more for serving)
- 1 cup bean sprouts (plus more for serving)
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1-2 teaspoons sriracha, plus more for serving
- roasted peanuts and lime wedges for serving
- Prepare the sauce, in a small bowl add soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, and sriracha. Whisk to combine.
- Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
- Add sliced chicken breasts to the heated pot, cook over medium heat 8-10 minutes until chicken is fully cooked (no longer pink).
- Add the cabbage, carrots, and pepper to the pot. Tossing occasionally cook for 4-6 minutes until the vegetables have started to soften.
- Add the sauce, bean sprouts, and green onion to the pot. Toss and cook a remaining 1-2 minutes.
