Asian Style Chicken Zucchini and Peanuts

This simple Asian Style Chicken Zucchini and Peanuts is quick and easy to prepare, matches perfectly with freshly steamed rice,

Several months ago we dined it at Barilla dumpling here in Auckland, we definitely loved their dumplings but one dish also stood out and it was this diced chicken stir fried with peanuts, zucchini and carrots. I still remember my daughter endlessly munching on them together with the steaming hot dumplings, it is one of those few moments I see her seriously eating in a restaurant that she didn’t even bothered to talk to us.

Today I we will be recreating that dish and after searching Google what it might be called again it gives me no luck so I will recreate them based on memory and here’s how I’ve done it.
