Teriyaki Chicken Bowl

Cook’s Notes: I love peanut sauce, and the addition of cashews makes this dish special. Plus it contains red bell pepper and snow peas, which are bright and crunchy. This is an excellent dinner.

1/3 cup + 1 T Soyaki or Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3.5 cups cooked chicken (16 oz package of Just Chicken), diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 cup snow peas, roughly chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 scallions (green onions), diced
1/2 cup cashews

Place water, peanut butter, and teriyaki sauce in a glass measuring cup (tip: add the water and sauce first, then add enough peanut butter to measure 1 cup total). Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to loosen the peanut butter; whisk the sauce to blend.

Dice the chicken and vegetables. Microwave the red bell pepper pieces for 1 minute to steam them slightly. Place chicken, vegetables, and cashews in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over all and stir to combine and coat evenly. Serves 4.
