Sunday: Stir Fry Chicken

This recipe came from my mother. It was the first dinner I prepared for my darling husband back when we were dating. I served it with apple sauce and Mountain Dew. :) This is back when we used to drink Mountain Dew like it was a dietary supplement that should not be missed. My husband (boyfriend at the time) ate seconds and thirds. Needless to say, I have been making it ever since.
What you need:
1-2 eggs, uncooked
1 lb chicken cut into pieces
1 tsp. garlic (1-2 garlic cloves)
1-2 cups rice cooked
vegetable oil
soy sauce
Frozen veges (we use peas, carrots, green beans blend)

Begin to cook rice, according to the directions on the package. Pour 2-3 Tbs. oil into skillet and begin to heat oil. Toss in 1-2 eggs and scramble. Add 1-2 cloves garlic and chicken. Allow to cook until chicken is no longer pink on the inside. Throw in vegetables and cook for 6-8 minutes or until veggies are tender. Stir in rice and soy sauce. (more or less according to taste)

To healthify this recipe substitute the following:
olive oil for veggie oil
brown rice for white rice
low sodium soy sauce for regular soy sauce.
For whatever reason, growing up, we always at this with apple sauce on the side. :)
