Recipe Notes

 This is a fairly lightly sauced dish in my opinion. If you like a lot of sauce, add a couple more Tbsp of nut butter and an extra Tbsp of sweet chili sauce and an extra squirt of sriracha and then enough broth to thin to desired consistency.

I tend to leave my sauce a little bit thick because I find it sticks to the chicken and veggies better that way.
