This recipe is at the top of the “quick and easy recipe” list. It is extremely versatile as you can tailor it to your personal flavoring desires. Here is my favorite version…
# of ingredients: 4
time to cook: 10 minutes
cooking experience needed: 0
1 bag of mixed veggies ( broccoli, carrots, snow peas, cauliflour)
1 packet of chicken (pre-cut into tenders or strips)
stir fry sauce (I use soy-vay, you can use whatever stir-fry seasoning you like, just be sure to check the nutrition label for sodium content- less sodium is better)
Brown Rice or Quinoa (I pre-cook this once a week)
Multi-task!!! Steam veggies on the stove or pop them in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Heat up 1/2 cup of grains. While your veggies and rice are warming up, you can start cooking the chicken. Chicken only takes 10-11 minutes to cook on the stove, super easy- not as scary as you may think. If you like to spice things up a little, add some sesame seeds and chili flakes. If you are cooking for 1 person, package up the left-overs and have them for lunch the next day, you just cooked 2 meals in 1.
Other alternative choices for protein are lean beef or occasionally tofu. You can add ANY veggies that your heart desires, the more colorful your plate is…….. the better!
