1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage (2 Greens)
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced (2 Greens)
1 1/2 pounds zucchini and yellow squash, spiralized into noodles (7 1/2 Greens)
2 lbs chicken breasts, chopped into 1 inch pieces (4 Leaner Leans)
Cooking spray

Peanut Sauce:
1/2 cup PB2 (4 Optional Snacks)
2 packets Stevia (2 Condiments)
3 tbsp lite soy sauce (3 Condiments)
4 tsp sesame oil (4 Healthy Fats)
1 tbsp rice vinegar (1/4 Condiment)
1 tbsp water
2 tsp fresh ginger, minced (1 Condiment)

Toppings:

1/2 cup cilantro (1/2 Condiment)

Directions:
Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and saute chicken until brown and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside. Place skillet back on burner, spray with cooking spray again and sauté the garlic over medium heat. Add the cabbage, and pepper slices. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are a little tender. Once tender, add the zucchini noodles and cook until tender-crisp. Add the chicken back to the skillet and stir until combined.

Combine all of the peanut sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk until everything is combined. Pour the sauce over chicken and vegetables. Toss everything around until combined and warm through. Divide into 4 equal portions and top with sesame seeds, cilantro, and green onion. Serve immediately.

* I garnished with chopped peanuts, but if you are following the 5 and 1 plan leave them.
