Chicken, Broccoli and Snap Peas Stir Fry


Why have I not been making stir fry my entire life??

I am always whining that I want to make a quick and easy meal, but never making the one quick and easy meal that everyone has pretty much already mastered.

Everyone except for me that is.

It's a long time coming, but here it is!

My favorite thing about this recipe is that I have all of the ingredients in my house at all times! Like, no exceptions. Except for maybe the snap peas. But if you don't want to put those in, or if you don't have them in the fridge, just leave them out!

Now that I have been experimenting with stir fry, I have realized how forgiving they are. And how I want to make them every day.

And to think. Before this, I was buying take-out stir fry like a sucker. Now that I know how easy it is to make, I should probably rethink what I spend money on. Sometimes I surprise myself when I realize how self reliant I can be.

  3. Add in the broccoli. Cover and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

  2. Better late than never! I live on stir-fry for easy dinners. If you have a rice cooker, all the easier to round out the meal. The grated garlic makes this so flavorful and it's healthy and easy so big time winner!

  13. We eat stir fry all the time. Instead of making my own sauce (because I am lazy), I usually add a few Tablespoons of oyster sauce and call it a day. :)
