    The Doing

    In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat.

    Add sausage, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps. Cook until completely browned.

    boneless skinless chicken

    bottle of peanut sauce (found it in the Publix ethnic aisle)

    salt, pepper, garlic (or whatever your go-to seasoning is)

    cooking oil


    The Doing

    Heat pan on stove top, add a few tblsp oil

    Cut the chicken into strips

    add chicken to hot pan, season chicken ( I guess you could do this before you add to pan)

    Cook, stirring as necessary, until done.

    At the same time, put some peanut sauce to the bottom of a mixing bowl.

    When chicken is done, add to bowl and mix up. Add more peanut sauce if necessary.

    Serve over rice.
