Our peanut sauce

Directions:

  1. Place all sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Set aside
  2. Start to spiralize your zucchini and let dry on a paper towel
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until brown on all sides (5-6 minutes)
  4. Add the bell pepper, carrots and garlic, stir fry for 2 more minutes
  5. Take the pan off the heat and mix in the sauce, noodles, green onion and peanuts. Add some hot extra if the sauce is too tick. (A lot of moisture actually drains from the zucchini noodles so wait until you mix everything together to see if you need more water)
  6. Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds
