Peanuts Inspired Chicken Stir Fry

I’m so excited to watch the Peanuts movie with my children – I loved the show growing up and the special features were always a holiday tradition. It’s a toss up which one is my favorite between The Great Pumpkin and Merry Christmas, but one thing is for sure we love Peanuts. I’ve cooked up the perfect Peanut chicken stir fry to go along excitement for the new movie being released!

Dinner and a movie sounded like the perfect way to start our own Peanuts family tradition. I had already grabbed Tyson Chicken Nuggets and knew those would be a quick fix for supper, but I wanted to play up that Peanuts theme for the night.
This Thai-inspired Chicken Stir Fry fit the bill – it’s a hearty and delicious meal my whole family loved, and it only took me 20 minutes to whip everything together – so I could focus on spending quality time with my family.

Meanwhile, make the sauce by heating the remaining garlic and onions in a wok, and then stirring in the peanut butter, soy sauce, and sweet chili sauce. (You can alternatively blend these five ingredients together first and then add to a wok.)
