Monday Night- Easy Stir Fry

We are getting pretty good at making scrumptious meals with whatever is leftover in the fridge. Tonight was no exception. Jon whipped up a spontaneous, spicy stir fry that had me going back for seconds- a rare occasion indeed! You certainly don’t have to use our ingredients. You can literally use any veggies you have on hand and it take less than 10 minutes. Here’s what we used.

Easy Stir Fry

  • 3/4 large green pepper
  • 1/2 extra large vandallia onion
  • 1 bag of bean sprouts
  • 4 oz mushrooms
  • 2 small heads of brocoli
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 1 1/2 chicken breast, sliced thinly across the grain
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Ginger
  • Chinese 5 spice
  • Red pepper flakes

Slice the chicken and sprinkled with spices. Dice the veggies. Heat the wok and then put the oil in. Allow oil to heat- it will happen quickly. Add chicken. Cook chicken until pink is gone. Remove chicken and set aside. Add veggies (except bean sprouts) to wok with salt and pepper. Heat and stir until broccoli is half done. Add chicken and bean sprouts, mix well. Pour in sauce, mix. Turn to stove low, cover and cook until veggies are soft (3-5 minutes).

Garnish with soy sauce and Sriracha to taste.
