My kids love stir fry, and lately, they end up eating more of the veggies I throw in than they leave on the side of the plate. You can usually throw together a good stir fry meal with things you have on hand. Keep some rice in the pantry, some soy sauce in the fridge, and then use whatever protein you have on hand. If you feel productive one day or find a great deal at the store, slice up some strips of chicken, beef or pork, and then freeze them so you can just thaw what you need and skip the whole cutting raw meat mess. This helps cut down on contamination when you're cutting up veggies, too.
Chicken Stir Fry
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast (or pork, or beef), sliced into about 1" pieces
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. evoo
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
juice of 1/2 a lemon
a dash of salt
VEGGIES - lots of them! I use a combination of the following:
broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces
carrots, cut into "matchsticks"
onion, thinly sliced - red or whatever you have
bell peppers (red, green, yellow, orange), sliced into thin strips
snap peas or snow peas
whatever else you have on hand
|To get this nice color, leave it alone!|
