I am a college student. I love to eat healthy, I love to eat cheaply, and I am currently gluten and dairy free. This is very restricting, but I manage. In fact, the restriction is like a challenge, and certainly makes shopping less overwhelming.
I’ll share one of my favorite recipes with you!
Basic Veggie Chicken Stir Fry
Ingredients: (Add these in the amount you wish – these are just suggested amounts)
Frozen Assorted Veggies – 1 cup
Chicken – 8 oz
Butter or ghee (ghee really makes this delicious) -1 to 2 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional – 1/2 slice of bacon
Optional – Cashews
Heat a frying pan on the stove on medium, melting the ghee/butter. Add the veggies, chicken, and bacon. Sprinkle salt and pepper. The chicken tends to cook slower, especially if it is not cut up, so keep it in the middle (the hottest part) of the pan. To speed up cooking, I like to put a lid over the pan to keep the heat inside. Stir occasionally. Keep checking on the chicken for doneness, making sure to cut open the thickest bit. Everything should cook in 5-10 min.
When everything is fully cooked, serve directly into a bowl or plate. (Optional – crush a few cashews onto the dish).
Enjoy immediately! Yum!
Until next time ~
