Tuesday: Chicken Stir Fry

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. :) 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 or coconut oil for vegetable 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. :)

ENJOY!

That looks so good. I found your blog through googling menu planning. I'm trying to come up with some menus for my family to cut down our food budget and eating out! I think I may add this recipe to something to try! My hubby loves rice! Also I saw your recipe for Bread Salad...looks amazing! ~Kimberly
