Ginger Peanut Stir-Fry

This is such an easy dinner, and can be adapted to include all kinds of vegetables, tofu, or beef.

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 1-inch pieces
1 medium, red bell pepper, sliced
1/4 large onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 fingers of ginger, grated
2-3 C broccoli, chopped
2 Tbs sesame oil
1 Tbs chili sauce
2 Tbs soy sauce
1/2 C unsalted peanuts
1/4 C water
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 C torn basil leaves

Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic, ginger, and onions, and sautee until soft. Add the red peppers, the chicken, the soy sauce, and chili sauce. Once the chicken is browned on all sides, add the broccoli and water and cook until the broccoli is bright green. Remove from heat and stir in the brown sugar. Top with basil and serve over rice.
