This was easy to make...I am in no way a "cook." I did however listen to others and cooked the rice first in chicken broth instead of water. I also maranated the chicken in teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic powder and a few red pepper seeds, then I cooked the chicken in the left over juices, not oil. I also added red pepper, corrots and scallions to the broccli and sauted them in with the ckicken. I thought the peanuts were awesome, but all I had was dry raosted. They worked great. It was very healthy and very little fat and calories. Even my husband the "meat and potato" man loved it. We are looking forward to the leftovers tonight!
