Cast your vote for Easy Chicken Stir Fry

Here I was,tired of the same old ways of making chicken. I wanted something easy, simple and different.

With this dish you can change it up a bit to make it more Italian. You can omit the soy sauce and the white wine and use Merlot instead. Add a dash of Balsamic vinegar and make a light sauce.

If making the Asian version, serve with rice, couscous or noodles. The Italian version can be served with garlic bread or pasta.

Using other vegetables is also recommended:

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Bok Choi
  • Turnip
  • Celery
  • Peppers
  • Red onions for colour


For a totally vegetarian mean substitute the chicken for tofu.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 4-6 persons

Ingredients

2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, cut in strips

2 medium carrots, sliced

½ cup green peas

1 medium brown onion, sliced

2 gloves garlic

3 tablespoons light soy sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

¼ cup dry white wine

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

Method:

First marinate your chicken in the soy sauce and a pinch of salt for about 15 minutes.

Heat oil in wok or skillet on medium and fry garlic until they start to get brown. Add chicken turning up the heat to medium high and cook, stirring, for about six minutes then add carrots. Stir-fry for another five minutes then add peas and stir-fry another five minutes. Add wine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add onions and stir-fry another minute then turn the heat off.

Serve with rice or cooked noodles. Chicken can be substituted with pork.

Note: soy sauce is a bit salty, so keep tasting to make sure you do not overdo the salting of the dish. Some persons may opt to omit the salt altogether.

      This does look easy and delicious and I believe what you call brown onion is our yellow from the description, know what you mean though, I always call red onion and cabbage purple, because that is how they look! Popping you a couple votes, you are too good to be under 90 and it is getting to be such a struggle!

      okay-I wasn't sure if I just didn't know the name or if the brown onion just wasn't available where I live :)

      I am sorry for the confusion but cooks usually refer to stuff by what it is called.

      There are four common type onions:-

      (1) the brown which is the most common, it is the one with the brown skin, this is probably the one you are used to.

      (2)the white onion and in some case some people say yellow. This one has a paler more delicate skin than the brown. Mostly larger than the brown.

      (3) the red onion, really more like purple

      (4)Shallot - small onions from the white or yellow onion family that is mostly used in French cuisine.

      I suppose a one or two cheese risotto would go well with it. Make it light and not too heavy on the cheese and you are good to go. Thanks.
