Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce box Mrs. T's Savory Onion Pierogies
  • 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ Cup peanut sauce
  • 1 Cup bean sprouts
  • ¼ Cup chopped peanuts
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

Directions

Boil the pierogies according to package directions. Drain. Meanwhile, in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter; cook the eggs until just scrambled, stirring constantly. Remove to a bowl.

In the same skillet, heat the peanut oil; over medium heat, cook the garlic until lightly browned. With a slotted spoon, remove the garlic to a bowl with the eggs.

In the same skillet set over medium-high heat, cook the chicken in the pan drippings until well browned and cooked through, stirring constantly. Add the salt and crushed red pepper.

Stir in the egg mixture, peanut sauce, bean sprouts, and cooked pierogies. Toss to mix well. Garnish with the chopped peanuts and scallions.

Pie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Pie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
