Chicken Stir Fry with Brown Rice

 

Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe

I got this recipe and the image above from allrecipes.com.  It is a basic simple stir fry.  You are welcome to switch it up and use up whatever fresh or frozen veggies you have.  I serve this over brown rice, but you could use white if you prefer.

 

 

Chicken Stir Fry

Ingredients

  • 4 (4 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil, divided
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced celery (1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 small onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules

Directions

  1. Cut chicken into 1/2-in. strips; place in a resealable plastic bag. Add cornstarch and toss to coat. Combine soy sauce, ginger and garlic powder; add to bag and shake well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of oil; stir-fry chicken until no longer pink, about 3-5 minutes. Remove and keep warm. Add remaining oil; stir- fry broccoli, celery, carrots and onion for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add water and bouillon. Return chicken to pan. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
