    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice into rounds. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter spread, vinegar, honey (kneading the packet before opening), 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    Brown the chicken & carrots
    3 Brown the chicken & carrots

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned.

    4 Finish & serve your dish

    Add the snow peas and chopped garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is browned and cooked through. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked rice topped with the finished chicken and vegetables. Top with the cilantro sauce and chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
