Chicken Stir Fry

Stir fry is a great food for a whole variety of reasons, but first of all it is actually really easy to prepare, so even if you are not an amazing cook you will be able to get a great recipe together.

Secondly stir frying food is also really quick- because the food is chopped up into small pieces the actually cooking time is very short- in fact preparing the ingredients is normally the longest part of the process.

Although a lot of Chinese food isn't renowned for being amazingly healthy, you can make a healthy stir fry very easily - if you use lots of vegetables and lean meats and you stay away from thick, sweet sources then you can make a really healthy stir fry very easily.

Here is one of my favourite chicken recipes for you to try out at home.

Chicken Stir Fry


2 Plump Chicken Breasts

A splash of soy sauce

Quarter of a pint of chicken stock

A tablespoon of vegetable, palm or olive oil.

Half an onion.

Half a sweet pepper.

First things first, cut all of the ingredients up- the chicken should be cut into chunks approx 1-2 cm in width, and the onion should be diced up finely. The sweet pepper should have the core removed, and be cut into strips.

Place your wok on a medium heat, and add the oil- when it is nice and hot cook the chicken for 8-10 minutes until it is golden brown, stirring so you do not let it burn. Make sure it is cooked throughout.

Take the chicken out and keep it warm, and add the peppers and onions for a few minutes and then add the stock and enough soy sauce to give it some flavour. Cook for another couple of minutes, until the mixture starts to thicken, add the chicken back in and serve with rice or noodles for a delicious meal.

This recipe should serve 2 and can be prepared and cooked easily in under half an hour- as long as you stick to healthy ingredients it makes a great quick and easy meal, especially after a long day at the office. You can also try different chicken stir fry recipe variations- try adding bean sprouts for some more authentic flavour, or maybe a little bit of cayenne pepper if you prefer you food to have a little bit of spice with it- you could also try a chicken and broccoli stir fry.
