Nikki's super simple stir fry, another yum!
WElcome to my foodie friday post! Glad you could stop by! Well I seem to be on a cooking post trend, 2 soup recipes, and now this yummy stirfry. I made it last night after calling my daughter, Miss Independent, to walk me thru the recipe. I have been craving it for 2 months, hmm, the same amount of time she has been away. So here goes, and remember, I am not a measurer, so allow your inner chef to come out and have some fun!!!
Nikki's Super Simple StirFry
Start with about
1T of EVOO, extra virgin olive oil
Saute about 1/8 cup of minced garlic, out of the jar, not sure how this translates in fresh garlic cloves??
In seperate pan, start rice, I used 2 cups rice to 2 cups water, I love left overs!
I used 2 large chicken breats cut into small chunks, but have also made it with part chicken and part shrimp, your choice
throw chicken in with garlic and add 1/4 t seasoned salt and 1t chili powder, you can also use cayenne pepper, but my husband is not a fan of spicey, so chili powder is enough for him..
cook chicken until done
Add approx. 2t soy sauce
Then a bag of garden blend stirfry frozen veggies and a can of water chestnuts for a yummy crunch!
Add your rice and voila, a yummy meal in no time at all, thanks Nikki!
