Chicken and vegetables stir fry

Chicken and vegetables stir fry

I would’ve liked this dish with more broccoli, but that’s all I had left.

I love ingredients that make weeknight cooking more quick and convenient.  Pre-cut, pre-rinsed broccoli florets, pre-frozen, portions of chicken, and pre-chopped garlic are so convenient.

As far as garlic goes, I personally prefer the flavor and aroma of fresh garlic and I like a lot of it.  It's not hard to prepare it, but sometimes I would just rather take the shortcut of pre-chopped, preserved garlic to save some time.  I get it in bulk because it's just cheaper if you use a lot of garlic.  The brand of garlic I used in this recipe was Kirkland Signature, the one from Costco.
My measurements are approximate.  I usually "eyeball" it and taste if it needs more of anything.

  • 4 chicken tenders, defrosted and sliced
  • 4 carrots, chopped into matchsticks
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons onions, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame oil
  • Dash of Sesame seeds

  1.  Prep all ingredients as described above (chop, mince, measure).
  2.  Heat large pan.
  3.  Add olive oil.
  4.  Add garlic.  Cook and stir fry until fragrant.
  5.  Add chicken. Stir fry making sure there is no pink left. Remove chicken from pan.
  6.  Add onions, carrots, broccoli, bell peppers. Cover and let cook until color brightens, about 5 minutes.
  7.  Add oyster sauce and stir well.
  8.  Add chicken back to pan and stir well.
  9.  Add sesame oil and stir well.
  10.  Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
