  1. Whisk together all of the Red Curry Hoisin Sauce ingredients in a medium bowl EXCEPT the peanut butter. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add red onions and chicken and cook just until outside of chicken is no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Add pepper, carrots and celery and stir fry for 2 more minutes.
  3. Stir in pineapple and Red Curry Hoisin Sauce and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until smooth.
