Instructions:​

For the Peanut Chicken:​

  1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, lime juice, minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, salt, and pepper until smooth. This will be your marinade and sauce.
  2. Place the chicken strips in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Pour half of the prepared peanut sauce over the chicken, reserving the other half for later. Toss the chicken until evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for best flavor.
  3. Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken strips and cook until browned and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from heat and set aside.

Assemble the Bowls:​

  1. Divide the cooked quinoa or brown rice evenly among serving bowls.
  2. Arrange the mixed greens, shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, bell pepper, and avocado on top of the grains in each bowl.
  3. Top each bowl with the cooked peanut chicken strips.
  4. Drizzle the remaining peanut sauce over the bowls.
  5. Garnish each bowl with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
  6. Serve the peanut chicken protein bowls with lime wedges on the side for an extra burst of flavor.
