I am always on the lookout for quick and easy week night meals, and although at first glance this recipe may look complex, it’s actually super easy and you might even have most of the ingredients on hand. Chicken breast is transformed into spicy peanutty goodness with a quick sauce of sesame oil, lime juice, peanut butter, soy sauce, and ginger. Then it is quickly cooked along with your favorite veggies and tossed in the sauce. Easy peasy. Dinner in under 20 minutes.

- Add sesame oil to a skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add a touch of cooking spray to the skillet (just to make sure nothing sticks since we aren’t using a lot of oil) and cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove and set aside.
- Add the red onion, red pepper, broccoli, carrots, and edamame. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 cup water and cover. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are tender Drain any remaining water, although it should evaporate.
