  • 1/8-inch thick slice fresh gingerroot, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili paste with garlic, or to taste
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup diced rotisserie cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup asparagus pieces, about 1-inch long
  • 1/4 cup yellow squash pieces, cut into half circles
  • 2 fajita-size (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 lime wedges


  1. CHOP ginger and garlic in a small food processor as finely as possible. Add remaining sauce ingredients and process until sauce is completely smooth. If sauce is too thick, add more water, a little at a time. If sauce is too thin, add more peanut butter. Toss about half the sauce with the chicken and put aside in a covered bowl.
  2. BOIL about 1 inch water in large skillet; add asparagus. Cover skillet and turn off heat. In 1-2 minutes, lift off cover and remove asparagus using tongs.
  3. PLACE squash pieces into microwave-safe bowl; add a little water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on HIGH about 2-3 minutes. Let cool slightly; carefully drain off water.
  4. MICROWAVE tortillas on HIGH about 15 seconds, or until tortillas are warm and are pliable. Put chicken on tortillas, top with asparagus and squash; drizzle with additional peanut butter sauce. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
