Chicken Stir Fry
Stir fry is a great quick and easy meal to make. The best part is you can add or take out any vegetables you do or do not like. I mostly followed the recipe below but added waterchestnuts and took out the bok choy (due to poor selection in the super market). To make this meal even easier you can buy prepackaged vegatables that have already been cut up in the fresh produce department at the super market. A great side to serve with this dish is brown rice.
- 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil, divided
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 2 pounds chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
- 1 head broccoli, stems removed
- 1 dozen mushrooms, sliced
- 3 carrots, peeled and julienned
- 1/4 pound green beans, diced
- 1 head bok choy, chopped
- 2 to 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add garlic and stir. Place the chicken in the pan and brown 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan, slice into strips, set aside.
Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat. Add the vegetables and teriyaki sauce. Stir-fry quickly until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the chicken strips, combine well and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
