It's been a very long several days in this household. My daughter, Alyssa, left for Germany yesterday where she's doing a semester abroad. It's an opportunity of a lifetime and she's been dreaming about it for some time now. She has been working hard and saving a lot of money in order to make this dream come true. Alyssa actually called this morning and I was so glad to hear her voice. She was extremely tired, but doing good. I was glad to hear her accomodations were pretty nice, got a SIM card for her phone, saw the campus and did some grocery shopping. Her buddy over there helped her the entire day. Thank goodness for her. For the next couple of weeks she'll be hanging around town, learning the German ways. Pretty soon she wants to start travelling to other countries. Our anxiety levels will be extremely high again. It's going to be a long semester for us.
In light of what has been going on, dinner tonight was not a high priority. We wanted something easy since I really didn't feel like cooking at all. My husband came up with an idea we haven't done in a long time. A Chicken Stir Fry was a great idea. Now you can make it the "real" way and cut all the fresh vegetables and make your sauce from scratch. Not tonight. I cheated.
Please take in mind there is no specific recipe for this. It all depends upon how many people you are feeding. The sauce also depends upon how much you prefer. I don't care for mine dripping in sauce, but nicely coated.
Chicken Stir Fry
1 chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
Sesame Oil or Vegetable Oil
frozen bag of stir fry vegetables
Kikkoman Stir Fry Sauce
Make the quantity of rice you think needed for your family.
Heat the oil in fry pan or wok. Add chicken breast. When almost done, add the frozen stir fry vegetables, ginger and the Kikkoman Stir Fry Sauce. Cook for several more minutes, until the vegetables are cooked but not too soft.
Serve over rice and add Soy Sauce to taste if necessary.
For my husband and myself, I used 1 chicken breast 1 1/4 cup Minute Rice and probably about 1/2 bag of vegetables. It was a perfect amount for just us with no leftovers. If I had thought about this ahead of time, I would have ordered egg rolls from the local Chinese restaurant and had my husband pick them up on his way home from work. That would have been perfect. Now I'm hungry for them. Another time.
Hope you like my super easy Chicken Stir Fry. Sorry there's no exact recipe, but it's fun to play around and be creative too.
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
