Perhaps the quickest, simplest stir-fry we’ve devised to date, this dinner involves very little prep work. Rather, you’ll employ pre-shredded cabbage and carrots, along with pre-cooked and diced chicken straight off grocery-store shelves—just toss them with sesame salad dressing, add peanuts for crunch, and throw it all over some cooked rice. (If you don’t have peanuts on hand or would prefer a different taste, sub in cashews or sliced almonds; both are equally delicious.) High in fiber, vitamins, and nutrients, the cabbage provides a healthy base for this mixture, while the chicken and nuts provide 40 grams of protein. Easy and healthy!

How to Make It
Toss the cabbage and carrots in the oil in a large skillet. Place over medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are limp but still crunchy, about 3 minutes.
Stir in the dressing and chicken. Heat through. Spoon onto a platter and sprinkle with the peanuts. Serve with rice.
