My chicken stir fry recipe is always a favorite when it comes to the need for a quick dinner. The best part is the after dinner cleanup because of the need for only one pan to cook the meal.
I love cooking stir fry and make it from scratch. The store bought bag meals are just too soggy once they are cooked and aren't as tasty or turn out too salty or don't have enough flavor. I cheat and use a marinade kit with this recipe, but it makes the best tasting stir fry I've ever tasted.
This stir fry recipe is a perfect all around meal choice because all of a healthy meal's servings of vegetables and meat are all cooked together at the same time. The combination of flavor and simplicity make this dinner recipe preparation fun.
You will love this simple flavorful chicken stir fry with broccoli and onions.
Two (2) Cups Fresh Broccoli Trees (Just the Heads)
One (1) Cup Cut Sweet Onions
One and a Half (1 1/2) lbs Sliced Chicken Thighs or Breasts
One (1) Pepper (Red, Green, Yellow or Mix) Cut (Optional)
One (1) Quart Bag of Snow Peas (Optional)
One (1) Bag Lea & Perrins Marinade in a Bag "Roasted Garlic Balsamic"
It is preferred to do this step twenty-four (24) hours, but this step can be done for ten (10) to twenty (20) minutes if you are pressed for time: Slice the chicken breasts or thighs and place pieces in Lea & Perrins Roasted Garlic Balsamic marinade bag. Shake and chill the marinade bag overnight in refrigerator.
Chop all ingredients to desired size, mix together, and place them in a large bowl.
Using tongs, pick out all of the chicken slices from the marinade bag and place them in a wok or large frying pan. Cook on medium-high heat for six (6) minutes, stirring often until chicken is no longer pink inside.
Move the chicken to one side of the pan and pour about two table spoons of the marinade that still remains in the bag to the open end of the pan. Add broccoli and onions (peppers and peas if desired) to the two tablespoons of marinade in the empty side of the pan. Sauté for four (4) minutes on medium high heat stirring occasionally.
Turn the stove top temperature down to medium and add the remainder of the Lea & Perrins marinade from the bag and cook for an additional five (5) minutes.
Remove from heat and serve promptly.
You can add in any other types of vegetables to your chicken stir fry recipe if you want. You can also leave out the meat if you are a vegetarian for a great meal.
