Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, coconut milk, stock and lemon zest until blended, then set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the garlic and chili pepper and stir-fry for 30 seconds to release the flavours.
  3. Add the chicken and five-spice powder and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until the chicken has coloured all over. Add the red pepper, carrots and mushrooms and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.
  4. Pour the peanut butter mixture into the wok and stir-fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Remove from the heat, stir in the chopped cilantro and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Cook's tip: You can spice things up a little by leaving the seeds in the chili pepper - chili peppers contain most of their heat in the seeds and membrane.

Variation: Turkey breasts could be used in place of chicken, 2 small zucchini rather than carrots and a drained can of sliced bamboo shoots as an alternative to the button mushrooms.
