- 8 cups (2 L) chopped romaine lettuce
- 1 1/4 lbs (625 g) boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) coarsely ground black pepper

On Cutting Board, dice chicken into 1-in. (2.5-cm) pieces using Santoku Knife. Combine chicken, salt and black pepper in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well. Heat oil in (12-in./30-cm) Skillet over medium-high heat 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Add chicken; cook undisturbed 4-5 minutes or until browned on one side. Stir chicken using Bamboo Spatula. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, chop peanuts on clean Cutting Board using Food Chopper; set aside. Cut baby corn in half crosswise. Slice bell pepper into strips; cut strips in half. Slice onion into 1/2-inch-thick (1-cm) wedges. Slice garlic using Garlic Slicer.
Add vegetables to chicken in Skillet; cook 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove Skillet from heat; stir in peanut sauce. Spoon stir-fry over salad; sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro, if desired.
