3 Tbsp   Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
2   Chicken Breasts, skinned, deboned, and cut in 1 inch diagonal strips
4   Cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp   Ginger, fresh, peeled, thinly sliced and cut in 1/4 inch pieces

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp of Roasted Garlic Olive Oil in a fajita pan or heavy skillet (or a wok if you are working on your stovetop). Over high heat stir-fry the chicken until it turns white (approximately 2 minutes). Transfer to a platter. Add the remaining oil to the skillet; heat and add garlic and ginger. Stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the onions, bell pepper, and sauteed shiitake mushrooms. Stir-fry until crisp/tender (approximately 2 minutes). Add the chicken, Southwest Herbs and Peanut Sauce to the mixture. Stir-fry for a minute longer.
  2. While all this is going on heat the flour tortillas according to your package instructions.
  3. Fill the tortillas with the stir-fry mixture. Roll up and serve immediately.
