Make

  1. Heat a wok with oil over medium heat. Add zucchini and bell peppers and saute until starting to turn tender, 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and chicken and saute until chicken is heated through.
  3. Push all ingredients to the side forming a hole in the middle, like a donut. Give stir-fry sauce a stir and pour into the donut hole. Wait for it to darken and bubble, and then toss to mix with chicken and vegetables.
  4. Remove stir-fry from heat and stir in cashews. Transfer to a serving plate and top with cucumbers and cilantro. Place lime wedges on the side.
  5. Serve stir-fry with smoothie. Enjoy!

I went a little rogue on this recipe, but we liked it a lot. I did add a peanut satay sauce as a base sauce on the crust (grabbed the sauce recipe from an archive recipe). Subbed zucchini for the cucumbers and added a bit of mozzarella on top. Served the Thai chili sauce as a dipping sauce on the side! It was delicious!

Very easy - I used Naan bread for the crust as has been done in other recipes - makes a quick and crispy crust.

Really enjoyed this pizza. Next time I will make a little more sauce than called for in the two serving recipe. Will definitely make this again and again.

Good, but wouldn't go out of my way to make it again. I liked the flavors and love using things for 2 meals (the sauce & chicken). Just wasn't one we thought we have to make again anytime soon.

soooo good! ended up using chicken tenderloins instead of rotisserie style. Cucumbers are essential!

I would definitely make again. Added peanut satay as base sauce and included a little coleslaw with the carrots. No bean sprouts (we are purchasing every two weeks in Montana during shelter in place). Used homemade dough and Kirkland canned chicken.
