I am in constant search of a dinner I can make that everyone will eat. This is always difficult with my 12 year old. Our family dinners are basically – taco night, pizza night, spaghetti night, baked potato night, etc. I am going to try this relatively benign stir fry, which is healthy and easy. I hope it works!
Healthy Chicken Stir-Fry
Serves 4 – 6
3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves,cut into strips or chunks
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 heads broccoli, cut
1 cup baby carrots, sliced thin
1small onion, sliced
1 lb snow peas
2 tsp sesame oil (you can substitute olive oil, canola, etc.)
¼ cup teriyaki sauce, to taste
Heat about a tsp or two of sesame oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add garlic and sauté until golden. Add chicken, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and stir fry until no longer pink (you may need to lower the heat so garlic doesn’t burn.) Remove chicken and garlic from pan. Add another tsp or two of sesame oil and return to high heat. Add all vegetables and stir fry for 5 or 10 minutes, or until tender– if using frozen snow peas, add them the last couple of minutes.
Add back chicken and garlic and add teriyaki sauce. Stir fry another minute or two. Serve over rice.
