Simple 25-Minute Stir-Fry

Stirfrypic

When I get home from a long day of school and I don’t have food prepped, I usually look for something quick to make which is how this simple stir-fry came to mind.

Reasons this is a quick and simple stir-fry:

  1. Two of the components I used cooked in the microwave
  2. I used chicken tenders, which cook much faster than chicken breasts
  3. I only used two sauces for flavoring

 

Directions:

First step is to cook your chicken

I seasoned my boneless skinless chicken tenders with salt, pepper, and a variety of Mrs. Dash’s seasonings.

I cooked these for about 15 minutes in a preheated 425 degree oven, flipping them halfway through so they brown on each side. DSC00137

Next step is to cook your rice, i used Uncle Ben’s Jasmine rice because it cooks in 90 seconds and is my favorite! DSC00138

Next step is to cook your veggies. I used this microwaveable stir fry blend I bought which steams in the bag in three minutes.

I love having items like this on hand because they cook fast, but if you didn’t have something like this at your house you could throw whatever veggies you have in! A simple veggie to keep on hand is broccoli because it’s super versatile.

Next, if you want you can cook an egg to put on top of your stir fry. I love runny eggs so that’s why I choose to add one to my dish.

Now you can start putting together your dish!

I weighed out half a serving of my jasmine rice, 4 oz of my cooked chicken, and a serving of my steamed veggies. After I had everything in my bowl I topped it with my two sauces.

Bragg Liquid Amino’s taste a lot like soy sauce without the boatload of sodium that usually comes with soy sauce.

The stir-fry sauce is another go-to sauce of mine that add’s good flavor

I used a serving of the stir fry sauce then just added the liquid amino’s to taste
