Simple Savory Stir Fry

When you’re a mom and, along with eighteen-thousand other things you have to do during the day, you aim to make a homemade meal once in awhile? Look no further. If you’re looking for a simple, healthy and delicious recipe to add to the mix — that your family will LOVE — let me introduce you to my stir fry.

As with all my recipes, they are a little more “art” than science. Some people are measure and portion kind of people and some people are throwers and dashers and dumpers. I wholeheartedly fall into the latter. Regardless, I think you’ll find this is super easy, healthy and uuber delicious. That’s always my goal.

You will need:

  • 1 package stir fry noodles (like this)
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • dash of ground fresh chili paste (to desired heat level)
  • Garlic (I use about 3 cloves)
  • 1/4 C homemade bone broth (or chicken stock)
  • veggies

Your favorite veggies. I use:

  • onion
  • celery
  • shredded carrots
  • mushrooms
  • sugar snap peas
  • bell peppers (green, red, orange and/or yellow)

To prepare:

  • Whisk together one egg white and 2 Tbsp cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Cut chicken into cubes and season with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the cornstarch/egg mixture and coat. This gives your chicken a light breading that holds the sauce really well. You can skip this step if you’re in a rush. But really? It’s a cinch, and sooooo good. Plus? Adding egg whites to your diet provides your body with protein, as well as some vitamins important for maintaining your health. Win-win.
  • In a skillet, add your chopped garlic to olive oil until it starts to sing. Add chicken.
  • While chicken is cooking, clean and slice your vegetables and add them to the pan with the chicken.
  • As the flavors are melding together gorgeously, get a pan of water going on the stove. Add your stir fry noodles to warm (about 5 minutes).
  • To your pan of chicken and veggies, add about 1Tbsp soy sauce, desired amount of chili paste, and 1/4 cup-ish bone broth or chicken stock.
  • Drain noodles, add to stir fry and serve.

And voila! It’s soo good.
