Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry with Peanuts

I feel like I’ve been on a stir-fry kick lately.  Maybe it’s because they are so easy to make  and are simple to make for one person.  I actually made this meal for my husband and I this past weekend.  We loved the spiciness and I thought it was pretty interesting  because when I was making it I felt like I was in a Thai restaurant because of the smell.  My husband took the leftovers to work the next day and he said it was great.  The recipe below is for one person so just double it for two people.   I served this over white rice.

Serves 1

  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half (6 to 8 ounces), thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 serrano or jalapeno chile, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 4 ounces snow peas (about 1 1/2 cups), stem ends trimmed
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, torn (optional)
