This is a spicy recipe! Lots of ingredients but well worth it.

I find that once I had these ingredients in my cabinet, I was able to make this recipe several times over. My family loves it so we eat it alot! My favorite part is that it all cooks in one single skillet.

Great served over Rice!

Cut chicken into small peices. Cook in oil 5-10 minutes until cooked through. May season with additional garlic if you like. Set Aside. Add peanuts and stir fry until lightly brown. Set aside. Cover to keep warm.

In same skillet, stir fry brocolli, mushrooms, scallions, celery, bell pepper, garlic, red pepper flakes and dried chili peppers to desired tenderness. May need to add a bit more oil. (I use Olive oil) Pan scrapings add flavor, so don't by shy.
