Fresh vegetables and brown rice provide a good dose of complex carbs, while the chicken, peanut butter, and peanuts offer healthy protein. You can make this a vegetarian dish by substituting 16 ounces well-drained, cubed, firm tofu for the chicken. Look for chili paste with garlic in the Asian section of your market.

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, peanut butter, vinegar, tamari or soy sauce, and chili paste. Set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add green onions, ginger, and garlic; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add chicken and stir-fry 5 minutes. Remove chicken mixture from pan.
  3. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pan. Add bok choy, bell pepper, and water chestnuts; stir-fry 3 minutes. Add chicken mixture and peanut butter mixture to pan and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Serve over rice; sprinkle with peanuts, if desired.
