Toss the cubed chicken breasts with the soy sauce. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and let it brown, about 10 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
While the chicken is browning, whisk all the Thai Peanut Sauce ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
½ cup all-natural peanut butter, ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce, ¼ cup fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons red curry paste, 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, 2 cloves garlic, 1 inch piece of ginger, ¾ cup water
Add the bell peppers and broccoli to the skillet. Let them cook until they begin to soften, about 4 minutes. Add the chicken back into the pan and pour the peanut sauce over the top. Bring the sauce to a boil so that it thickens slightly and coats the chicken and veggies.
