Thai Chicken Stir Fry

Once upon a time I used to have the luxury of cooking dinners at a slow pace, chopping each vegetable by hand, and carefully selecting my ingredients while watching whatever I wanted on TV. These days, I have a two year old clinging to my leg screaming, "I WANT TO HELP YOU CUT! I CAN USE A KNIFE!!!!!" while Daniel Tiger plays in the background. So... needless to say, things have changed. A bit. I wouldn't trade it for the world, but the world is definitely a different place than it once was! With that said, I've gotten creative and found some new shortcuts to make dinner easier. I've been using Green Giant's frozen teriyaki vegetable blend in stir fry recipes often and I really like it! If you haven't tried it, I suggest it.

This meal was excellent. I was reluctant to add the peanut butter in because Landon was awake during dinner time, but I'm glad I did. I simply removed his serving before stirring it in, that way we all got to enjoy it but John and I still got to enjoy the peanuty flavor. I love this and plan to make it often. It's so easy... and now I have a jar of chunky peanut butter to use up!
