tasty tuesday: chicken stir fry

February 21, 2012

i’ve mentioned before that i love experimenting in the kitchen, even though i’ve found that following recipes is a LOT safer [maybe soon i’ll tell you guys about my scone fail this past weekend]. last friday while working from home, my friend and i were seriously craving veggies so i decided to try and make some type of stir fry [not really knowing what would would be the end result – after all, this was going to be yet another experiment – read no recipe here].

i had defrosted chicken and also had some left over rice… which seemed enough [besides the veggies, of course!]. long story short, we both thought it turned out pretty yummy. if you decide to try it out, the “recipe” below should get you something close to what we had [but hopefully even better :)].

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ingredients:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cut into thin strips
1 yellow pepper – cut into slices or wedges
1 red pepper – cut into slices or wedges
1 small onion – cut into slices or wedges
1 to 2 cups broccoli florets – steamed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups cooked rice
2 tbsp stir fry sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp chili paste
1 tbsp butter

how to prepare:

pre season the chicken with salt and pepper.

heat butter in a non-stick wok or large skillet over medium heat.

when the butter is melted, brown onions for a few minutes. add the chicken and sautee until it’s golden brown. add peppers and broccoli and stir for a few minutes. add the rice, stir fry sauce, soy sauce and chili paste and continue to to stir until the veggies are tender yet still crunchy for about 5 minutes.
