Chicken, Veggie and Brown Rice Stir-fry
This is a great dish if you want to use whatever veggies you have on hand. I used peppers, onion, mushrooms and corn, but other awesome veggie ideas you can use are green beans, broccoli, zucchini, peas or edamame to make a completely different dish. Garlic and ginger are even optional, but here is what I used and my fam loved it! The ingredient quantities are not important so vary as you wish!
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon fresh garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ginger
1 onion, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
8 oz package of mushrooms,diced
1 cup corn kernels (I used frozen)
1 egg (optional)
1 package 90 second brown rice or even leftover rice—or make it if you prefer!
3-4 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium if watching sodium)
1-2 tablespoons rice vinegar
Dice chicken into pieces and set aside
Sauté garlic and ginger in sesame oil until fragrant
Add Chicken and cook through, slightly browned
Remove chicken from the pan and set aside
Cook peppers (or other veggies)
Add mushrooms and corn kernels and continue cooking until done
Optional: Push veggies to side of pan and crack egg to scramble
Stir in rice and chicken
Stir in soy sauce and rice vinegar
There you go an all-in-one-meal!
