chicken stir fry

I'm always desperate for something healthy, delicious and easy to cook, so I'll often turned to my dad for inspiration and after talking I'll cook something completely unrelated to what we are discussing :) Take today for example, here is how our conversation went:

Me: "Dad, I am hungry what should I have for dinner?"

Dad: "Well today I had a salad with some jumbo grilled shrimp and..."

Me: "OOO I will make stir fry"

So I set off to the grocery store for a few key ingredients, heated up the wok and 20 minutes later had a great, healthy meal.

Ingredients (for one, as always):

  • 1 chicken breast

  • "fajita mix" balance of onions, red peppers, green peppers

  • 4 - 5 mushroom caps, halved or quartered (optional)

  • sesame oil

  • vegetable oil

  • teriyaki sauce


Heat your wok (a frying pan will work fine) on medium high heat and coat evenly with vegetable oil.

While the pan is heating, slice the chicken into long strips or cubes then salt and pepper.

Once the oil starts to smoke a little bit add the chicken into the wok and move vigriously around the wok. The great thing about having a wok is that the surface area is large enough to move everything around constantly and it's easy to regulate the cooking temperature.

Add in the vegetables after about 5 minutes of cooking and then sprinkle with sesame oil. Let the vegetables and chicken cook together for about five more minutes.

After a total of ten minutes of cooking add in about 2 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce and let everything cook together for about a minute.

Then you're done! That's it! Wasn't that hard was it? I know, I know, I'm good.
