Another cloudy day and another rough Monday morning. This weekend I ordered Indian food, watched eps of True Blood Season 1 (now awaiting disc 3...Netflix better kick into high gear so I can get my Bill fill), barbequed, and stayed out way too late on Saturday celebrating my sister's birthday. Since I'm still sleepy and gluttonously full from my super fun weekend, tonight will be spent doing laundry, writing up a storm, and making a low key dinner for hubby and me. I'll be making one of my Monday night faves, Asian stir fry starring my new favorite sauce, House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce. Packed with vegetables, this easy recipe is healthy, savory, and a sure fire crowd-pleaser. Please take note that this recipe has little measurements in it. I typically just eyeball everything and throw it into a wok or pan together.
Rachel's Spicy Stir Fry
1 lb cubed chicken
1/2 onion, minced
Brown rice, cooked (about 1 C per person)
String beans, washed and tips cut off
Broccoli, washed and cut into florets
Carrots (I use bag of baby carrots, available from Fruit Guy at $1/bag)
Cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
Basically any other vegetable you want in your stir fry
House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce
House of Tsang Spicy Stir Fry Sauce
Salt & pepper to taste
Saute cubed chicken with minced onion in a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to season. Once cooked through, remove from wok or saute pan. Add cut, washed veggies to pan over medium heat. Add stir fry sauce to taste (I use half regular, half spicy for a bit of a kick without lighting my mouth on fire). Mix well, cover, and cook vegetables in sauce until tender. Add chicken back into pan, mix well, and cook another few minutes. Serve over brown rice.
Note: Since I enjoy my food completely doused in sauce (after all, isn't the food just a vehicle for the sauce?), I'm not recommending amounts of the stir fry sauce, but instead suggest adding to your own taste.
