Stir Fries are Better Than French Fries

I love stir fry for dinner...super easy, tons of flavor, and a great way to sneak in extra veggies.  The trick is to load up on spices and add in a fun twist like fruit...otherwise you'll OD on soy sauce and then bloat up like Aunt Marge in Harry Potter.

Asian Chicken Stir Fry

What you need:
  • Chicken breast
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Lemon juice
  • Canola oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Paprika
  • Ginger
  • Hot pepper flakes
  • Carraway seeds
  • Black pepper
  • Pineapple
What you do:
  • Cut up chicken into bite sized pieces.  Cook till done with canola oil and lemon juice
  • Rinse and chop up veggies.  Keep in mind that cabbage will cook down, so don't go light!
  • Throw it all in a big pan with more oil and add the spices and soy sauce
  • Add in pineapple
  • Don't cook it all too long or your veggies will be mushy (and will lose some of their nutritional perks...which frankly is why we eat them, right?)
  • Enjoy!

  1. I'm definitely guilty of loading up on soy sauce whenever I stir fry. Next time, I'll just add more spice!
