Asian Chicken Green Salad

  • 1 T. peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts -- cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper -- cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 c. coarsely shredded carrot
  • 1/2 c. hoisin sauce
  • 1 T. chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 3-4 green onions -- thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. romaine lettuce -- cleaned and coarsely torn
  • 1/4 c. roasted peanuts -- chopped

Heat the peanut oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry for about 4 minutes or until the chicken is no longer visibly pink. Add the bell pepper and stir-fry an additional minute. Add the shredded carrot, hoisin sauce, chili-garlic sauce and lime juice and toss the mixture to form a thick sauce. Add the green onions, stir, cover and remove from the heat.

Arrange the lettuce on 3-4 serving plates and spoon the spicy chicken mixture over the top. Sprinkle the top of the chicken with the peanuts before serving.
