Chicken Zucchini Rollups with Ginger Peanut Sauce

These are SO Good!  When I made them, I could have eaten all of them, but I made myself stop after two!  I love the flavor of the sauce, it really complements the zucchini and chicken.  When I saw this recipe that used peanut butter, I was excited to substitute peanut powder in it.  (I substituted a few other things, too.)  I really like using peanut powder because it tastes just like real peanut butter when used in cooking, and it doesn’t have the fat calories that you get from real peanut butter.

Chicken Zucchini Rollups with Ginger Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:
2 large skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
6 medium to small zucchini, diced
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
6 jalapeños, seeded if desired, and diced
12 burrito sized flour tortillas

Sauce:
2 inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped as finely as possible
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 T peanut powder
2 T soy sauce
1 T sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T sesame oil
1/4 t crushed red chilies (optional)

Mix together throughly in a bowl.

Directions:
Saute chilies, bell pepper, and onion in a large frying pan or wok coated with non-stick spray until hot.  Add zucchini and stir to mix, cooking for a minute or two.  Add chicken and sauce, stir to mix, and cook until heated through.  The vegetables should remain tender-crisp.  Zap a tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds, spoon 3 or 4 spoonfuls of chicken mixture on, roll up, and eat!  Yummers!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
