Thai Peanut Chicken Stir Fry

Sometimes being lazy works out pretty well.

I would normally make my own sauce, but trader joes has a real nice "Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinigairette". It is spiced real well for me, so I added it to a couple of pounds of chicken tenders and marinated it for about 8 hours. I then grilled the tenders over charcoal with maple smoke for about 15 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside with peanuts and chopped cilantro sprinkled over the top.

For the vegetables, julienned carrot, julienned Jicama (had it in the fridge so what the heck), celery, julienned Red Pepper, rough chopped green onion, and fresh cilantro. Stir fry with peanut oil if you have it, add a clove of fresh minced garlic and salt and pepper; add the carrots and jicama first, add the peppers and celery after about 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and stir in the green onion and cilantro.

Serve over rice place on a bed of fresh baby spinach and sliced tomatoes, drizzle extra Peanut vinigiarette over the top.
