American Stir-Fry

Looking for something different to do with chicken? How about an American stir fry- no soy or sauces.

American Stir-Fry
from Samantha Shivler Young

4 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 cups frozen carrots
2 cups frozen broccoli
1/4 onion, sliced however small you have to in order to hide it from your kids
2 cups cooked rice (my kids and hubby won't eat wild, so I use white long grain which is 1 cup dry)

1. Cut chicken into bite sized chunks, and saute over medium heat in a non-stick pan (I use cast iron) with pepper, garlic powder, and whatever other spices you like. No oil is necessary.
2. Start rice. (long grain takes about 20 minutes but adjust according to whatever you're using)
3.When chicken is cooked through, add onion, carrots, and broccoli along with 1/4 cup water for steaming.
4. Stir occasionally, checking for desired tenderness of veggies. If you let the chicken brown a little, it caramelizes in its own juices, giving it a little more flavor.
This feeds my family of 7 (5 kids, ages 3-12), and it is also yummy reheated.

Come back next Tuesday for another great recipe!
