Cut up the chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces. Try to make them all the same size.
Same with the veggies. If they are all the same size, they cook more evenly. Have different veggies in the fridge? You can add the ones you like. Bell peppers would work great!
Season your chicken with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine the satay sauce, garlic and honey. Mix well
Combine all the vegetables in a fry pan with the oil. Saute on medium high heat until they begin to soften slightly.
Add the chicken. Keep stirring and moving the ingredients around.
When the chicken is cooked through, add the sauce. Mix and continue to saute for 1 – 2 minutes and remove from heat.
Serve with rice and garnish with chopped peanuts and green onions. Enjoy!
