Peanut Chicken

I got the idea from watching the Rachael Ray Show. She made "Make Your Own Take Out: Spicy Peanut Chicken." I modified it to my liking since Dave isn't a big fan of spicy and I wanted to use stuff that we had around the house instead of having to go shopping. Next time I plan on adding green peppers for more flavor and to include a vegetable.

Peanut Chicken

1 cup of brown or white rice cooked by boxes directions
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast diced into bit size pieces
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp garlic
1 Tbsp minced onion
1/4 cup creamy JIF peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts

- Cook rice by directions on the box.
- Heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil on high heat in a large skillet. Add chicken. Cook until no longer pink on inside.
- Remove chicken from skillet, set aside on plate.
- Add 2 Tbsp vegetable oil to large skillet on high heat. Add onion, and garlic. Stir into oil until all of garlic powder is disolved.
- Add peanut butter, soy sauce, and chicken stock. Stir until become a sauce.
- Add chicken back into sauce, along with peanuts.
- Stir together so sauce is coated over chicken and peanuts.
- Remove from heat.
- Let stand for 1 minute to let sauce thicken.
- Serve over rice.
