A stir fry I made with what I had on hand. Good way to use about-to-go-bad produce.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Ginger Stir Fry

1 large carrot
20 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 celery stalks
1 1/2 cups broccoli
1 medium red bell pepper
10 oz canned baby corn
8 oz sliced water chestnuts
2 tsp fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic
2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp water

Recipe Directions for Chicken Ginger Stir Fry

  1. Chop all foods into stir-fry size pieces

  2. Cook chicken pieces in a small amount of olive oil and soy sauce. It will continue to cook when veggies are added, so it may still have some pink in it.

  3. Mix crushed/pressed garlic, 1 tsp grated ginger, and a couple tbsp of olive oil together in medium or large bowl. Toss vegetables to coat.

  4. Put vegetables into pan with chicken and cook on medium-high for 2 minutes. (at this point you may want to add more olive oil to ensure the vegetables get tender)

  5. Add 3tbsp water, 2 tbsp soy sauce (or to taste) and second tsp of grated ginger. Cook until vegetables have reached preferred tenderness. If you like it sweeter, add a sugar substitute to taste.

  6. Enjoy.

  7. (If you want to add Shirataki noodles make sure you rinse them and pat them dry prior to use. Par boiling them as the package recommends makes them chewy. The prep work plus the absorption of olive oil and soy sauce rids them of the nasty fishy smell. I highly recommend cutting them in smaller sizes and adding them towards the end of cooking)
