Fast Food (The healthy kind, already!)
Easy Chicken Stir Fry
What do you see in your mind’s eye when you hear the words, “fast food”? Do you see golden arches and a clown named Ronald? Or is it more like a bearded Southern gentleman whispering promises of perfect fried chicken?
How about stir fry? Have you ever considered that? You don’t have to get in your car and drive-thru anywhere. It’s almost as fast as a drive-thru, too. Stir-Fries are easy, healthy and if you have the inclination to get yourself a flat-bottomed wok (one of my favorite cooking tools) it’s a snap, although any old large skillet will do.
The thing that is so wonderful about a stir fry is you can vary the spices and come up with your own unique recipe–once you get the hang of making stir fry, that is. (What do you think fajitas are anyway? The ultimate Mexican stir fry!)
The secret to a perfect stir fry is to make sure the skillet or wok (with the added oil) is hot before you add the food. To ensure even cooking, keep the food moving by stirring constantly–as if your very life depended on it. 😉
Here’s cinchy recipe that will cook up faster than the rice will–so make sure you time it right. I have nothing but RAVES every time I serve it.
