Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (more if needed)
  • 1 cup carrots (chopped)
  • 3 bell peppers (chopped, I used 1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow)
  • 1 head broccoli (chopped)
  • 1 pound chicken (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 3/4 cup Yoshida’s Gourmet Sauce

Optional: Sliced onions, sliced mushrooms, snap peas or any extra veggies you want to throw in

    For serving: Rice

      Instructions

      • If serving with rice, start cooking it prior to beginning the chicken since it will take the longest to cook. 
      • Place the olive oil in a large skillet or wok pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables to the pan and cook until tender (5-10 minutes). Place the veggies on a plate. 
      • Add more olive oil if needed. Then add the chicken to the pan, flipping once the bottom is lightly browned. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the center is no longer pink, about 5-6 minutes. 
      • Once the chicken is cooked, add the vegetables and sauce into the pan. Let simmer for about 5 minutes over medium heat, or until the sauce has thickened. 
      •  Serve chicken vegetable stir fry over rice. 

      Notes

      Homemade sauce: Whisk together 1/4 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup lite soy sauce, 3 Tablespoons honey and 1 Tablespoon corn starch. Add a few red crushed red pepper flakes if desired for a little heat.
