Active: 40 minTotal: 40 min

This Indonesian-inspired fried rice is elevated with the flavors of ginger, garlic, honey, and lime juice. Peanuts stirred in at the end give it a nice crunch. It was a meal that got high reviews back when we first featured it in 2018.

Why don't I marinate chicken more often? This was very easy, very quick, and very delicious! I made 4 portions on Sunday, and it kept me interested the whole week!

I had to take the chicken out of the baking dish and cook it for an additional 20 minutes on a sheet pan because I didn't cut the chicken breasts smaller, but overall, super delicious! The peanut-sauce made the entire dish.

I marinated chicken breast and cut them in strips and cooked them in the wok after the beans. I prepped the marinade and peanut sauce on the weeken, so it all came together really quickly. It was really delicious!

Really delicious - chicken was tasty and tender, green beans were yummy, and the peanut sauce was great! I would increase the amount of sauce next time, for sure. I used a little cayenne powder instead of hot sauce for the heat in the peanut sauce.
