    1. In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, coconut milk, stock and lemon zest until blended, then set aside.
    2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the garlic and chilli and stir-fry for 30 seconds to release the flavours.
    3. Add the chicken and five-spice powder and stir-fry for 3–4 minutes until the chicken has coloured all over. Add the red pepper, carrots and mushrooms and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes until slightly softened.
    4. Add the peanut butter mixture to the wok and stir-fry for a further 2–3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Remove from the heat, stir in the chopped coriander and serve immediately.


    Turkey breast fillets could be used in place of chicken, 2 small courgettes rather than carrots and a drained 227g can of bamboo shoots as an alternative to mushrooms.
