      • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
      • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
      • 2 garlic cloves, minced
      • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter plus 1 Tbsp peanut butter
      • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
      • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
      • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce (gluten free if needed)

      • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
      • 1 Tbsp chopped peanuts
      • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
      • 1 cup thinly sliced celery


      • In a medium bowl, pour the teriyaki sauce over the chicken. Add the ginger and half the garlic to the bowl and stir to combine. Marinate, covered and refrigerated, for at least 1 hour.
