Stir fry recipe!

Last night I finally got around to making the stir fry that I’d planned to make last week. It was even better than I expected it to be! I may play around with the ingredients the next time I make the dish, but I think the version I made last night is worthy of a post. Keep in mind that I made this based on tasting while I cooked, but I’ll do my best to provide the measurements I used.

  • 12 Oz grilled chicken breast, chopped into bite-sized chunks (shrimp would also be great)
  • 1 bag of frozen stir fry veggies (I used asparagus, broccoli, carrots, yellow squash, cauliflower, red peppers and peas)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, rough chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1.5 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 2-4 tablespoons Sriracha (taste and add more if you like heat)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over fairly high heat (I put my burner on 8). Add the veggies, onion and chicken (it will splatter, so keep kids and pets away). Cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the garlic and ginger during the final minute of cooking. Remove all ingredients from the skillet (or push to the side if using a wok), lower the heat a bit and prepare the sauce by combining the last 5 ingredients, stirring constantly until smooth. Add more Sriracha if you want a spicier stir fry, and add more chicken broth if you want more sauce. Taste as you go. Toss the chicken and veggies back in, and cook for about another minute, stirring constantly.

That’s about it! I served this over a bed of brown rice, and Lisa and I both loved it. I actually used 1 tablespoon of grated ginger last night, but I found the ginger to be a bit overpowering (my only complaint about the dish); I’ve adjusted the above recipe accordingly.

I forgot to take a picture, but I’ll get one next time and add the recipe to the recipe section of this site. By the way, a huge “thank you!” to my mom and forum member “MannishBoy” for their invaluable contributions to this healthy and delicious dish!
