Stir Fry Meal

Wassup?! So here is one of my favorite dishes to cook up. It’s just stir-fry! I really don’t have any concrete measurements for you so maybe I can walk you through it, okay?

Ingredients:

4 Boneless Chicken Breasts; sliced and cubed

2 Packages Frozen Broccoli Florets; or 2 Whole Stalks of Broccoli

1 Red Bell Pepper Sliced

1 Yellow Pepper Sliced

1 Orange Pepper Sliced

1 1/2 c. Sliced Mushrooms

1 can of Chestnuts; drained

1 tsp Grated Ginger

1 tsp Chopped Garlic

1 tsp Black Pepper

Pinch of Sea Salt

1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1/2 c. soy sauce

1 tsp White Pepper

So the first thing you want to do is marinate your chicken or meat of your choice with ginger, garlic, freshly cracked black pepper, sea salt, red pepper flakes, white pepper, and low sodium soy sauce. Marinate for two hours or over night depending on when you want to cook this meal.

In a bowl combine 4 cups Beef Broth and 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch, mix well. Place this mixture into a pot and boil for 5 minutes or until it’s slightly thicken. Remove mixture from the heat.

Next you want to prep your veggies! Slice up all your peppers into finger sized pieces, move on you your mushrooms, and broccoli. I recommend frozen broccoli, it just cooks faster in my opinion. I normally get my broccoli at Costco, they come in 4-6 individual packages. Use two packages for this recipe. Once all the prepping is out of the way heat a large skillet, like the one in the photo above with 1 Tablespoon of oil add your broccoli, cook for 5 minutes then remove broccoli.

Next add your marinated chicken in two batched, cooked just until its under cooked, it should have a little pinkness to it. Not to worry people it’ll finish cooking once you put the whole meal together! Once the chicken is done add the broccoli back to the skillet along with the beef broth mixture. Crank that fire sky high until it start to boil, for 5-7 minutes.

Then add your peppers, let that cook for 15 minutes. Add the mushrooms at the end and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until softened.  Add chestnuts and cook for one minute. And you’re all done! see it wasn’t that difficult.

Again these aren’t accurate measurement. I just wanted to give you a general idea of how I cook, it’s usually off the top of my head. I really don’t measure anything out once I’ve perfected it. Remember cooking is all about YOUR TASTE! Always season and re season to your taste.

It’s always a good idea to pair this dish with rice or egg rolls like I did below. Hope you enjoy this recipe.
