CHICKEN STIR-FRY INGREDIENTS:

Veggies:

Broccoli: 1 Cup of Broccoli. You can add more if you want, depending on your personal preference.

Mushrooms: 1 Cup of Mushrooms. Substitute for other veggies. Use whole or sliced.

Green Beans: 1 Cup of Green Beans. Substitute for other veggies, if you don’t like green beans.

Cabbage: 2 Cups of Green Cabbage or more depending on how much you want to make.

Other ingredients:

Water Chestnuts: 1 Cup of Water Chestnuts or Cashews. This gives a sweet, neutral flavor and crunchy texture.

Low-Sodium Soy Sauce: 1 Tablespoon will be enough if your trying to cut back on sauce. Using fewer amounts and a low-sodium sauce makes it healthier.

Teriyaki Sauce: 2 Tablespoons of Teriyaki Sauce. Substituting the Teriyaki Sauce for other sauces will work too.

Italian Extra Virgin-Olive Oil: Pour in skillet just enough to coat the pan. Cooking Cabbage in Olive Oil gives it plenty of flavors. Substituting Olive Oil for Cooking oil works great as well.

Chicken Breasts: Use three boneless skinless chicken breasts. You can substitute the chicken for steak, hamburger meat, or pork.

Chicken Broth: Use 1/2 cup of Chicken Broth or Water. Either will work

These are the ingredients you will need to make this recipe. You can certainty find most of these ingredients in most grocery stores.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN STIR FRY:

  2. Prepare Cutting up Chicken Breasts: Cut each Chicken Breasts in bite sized pieces on cutting board.
  3. Heat & Coat Skillet: Heat Skillet to Medium Heat and Coat the bottom with Italian Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

  5. Add Veggies: Add your 1 Cup of Mushrooms, 1 Cup of Green Beans, 1 Cup of Water Chestnuts, and 1 Cup of Broccoli.
  6. Stir Veggies: Stir your Vegetables for 5 to 10 minutes. Add in 1/2 Cup of Water or Chicken Broth. After you have added your Water or Chicken broth go ahead and add in the cabbage.
  7. Add Teriyaki Sauce: Add 2 Tablespoons of your Teriyaki Sauce.
  8. Add Low-Sodium Soy Sauce: Add 1 Tablespoon of your Low-Sodium Soy Sauce.
  9. Stir Everything together: Stir all your ingredients for 5 to 10 minutes. The key is to cook it to where it is brought to the right consistency.

Your Ready to Eat! Turn off heat and remove skillet from stove.

TIPS:

Chicken Stir-Fry is excellent served with brown rice and white rice. If it is too runny, add a sprinkle of cornstarch or flour to thicken. Depending on what your preferences are. The key is to not cook the vegetables to the point where they get soggy. Getting that crunchy texture is the right way to go.
