What's For Dinner: Broccoli Chicken Stir Fry


I am all about easy dinners lately. This stir fry really only had three main ingredients -- rice noodles, frozen broccoli stir fry veggie mix, and chicken cut into stir fry strips. I started the process by sauteing the chicken in a smidge of sesame oil in the electric skillet. Since I wanted to eat a vegetarian dinner, at the same time that the chicken was cooking, I dry fried some tofu cubes in a skillet on the stovetop. After the chicken was cooked, I removed it from the electric skillet and added the frozen veggies. They cooked for about 7 minutes, or until heated through. While the veggies were cooking, I softened the stir fry noodles in hot water on the stovetop. Once the rice noodles were done, I removed them from the cooking pot and placed them in a bowl of cold water until I was ready for them. When the veggies were cooked through, I added the chicken back to the electric skillet (alternately, you could add in the tofu cubes at this point if you're doing a vegetarian meal). Next, I poured 2/3 cup of teriyaki sauce over the whole shebang and let it simmer for about five minutes. Right before serving, I added in the cooked rice noodles, stirring them around to warm them back up and meld all the flavors together. I made a plate for myself by picking around the chicken, and added the tofu cubes to my portion. D had as much chicken as his heart desired. Stir fries are a super-simple way to make a meal that both vegetarians and carnivores can get behind!
