What to make for dinner? Easy Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

When it comes to deciding what’s for dinner, everyone looks at mum to decide and on top of all that mum is expected to take everyone’s taste sensations and likes and dislikes into regard when preparing a meal for the family. So we are suggesting a dish that is both healthy, nutritious and tasty.

Chicken Stir Fry is not only easy to prepare but also a good way to get the family involved in the preparation phase and making them work for their food so to speak (hahaha – our evil laugh)…

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thighs, or a mixture of both, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch think pieces

1 medium red bell pepper

8 – 10 snow peas

2 medium garlic cloves

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Steamed white rice for serving

Method:

– Place the oyster sauce, Shaoxing or sherry, soy sauce, cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken, toss to thoroughly coat with the marinade, and let sit, uncovered and at room temperature, for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.

– Core and remove the seeds from the pepper and cut it into 1/4-inch slices; set aside. Rinse and dry the snow peas and set them aside. Finely chop the garlic and place it in a large bowl. Trim the ends of the scallions, cut them into 1/4-inch pieces, and add to the bowl with the garlic; set aside.

– When the chicken is ready, heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or large frying pan (do not use nonstick) over high heat until a bead of water dances when dropped in the pan, about 1 to 2 minutes.

– Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the oil around the perimeter of the wok or pan and add the sliced bell pepper. Using a metal spatula, stir-fry until crisp-tender and charred in spots, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to the large bowl with the garlic and scallions.

– Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the oil around the perimeter of the wok or pan and add the snow peas. Stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to the large bowl with the peppers, garlic, and scallions.

– Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of oil around the perimeter of the wok or pan. Add the chicken along with the marinade, and arrange the chicken in an even layer. Let it sear undisturbed until golden brown on the bottom, about 1 to 2 minutes, then stir-fry until golden brown all over and cooked through, about 2 minutes more.

– Add the garlic, scallions, peppers, and snow peas. Stir-fry until the marinade has thickened, is glossy, and coats the chicken and vegetables, about 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve immediately over steamed rice.
