So the other night my boyfran and I had our usual conversation… “What should we have for dinner?””Ugh, I don’t know” “What do you want??” “I don’t care…what do you want??” It is the most annoying circular conversation ever, and we have it almost every night. So finally we decided to just use what we had in the apartment and throw something together. It ended up that we had all the right ingredients for a stir fry!
chicken tenderloins – a frozen bag of peas and carrots (I only used half a bag) – rice – 2 or 3 eggs – soy sauce – stir fry sauce (not completely needed but if you have it lying around, it really enhances the dish!)
First, I sautéed the chicken tenderloins in some olive oil and salt and pepper. Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the pan, cut it into chunks, and throw it back in the pan. Next, add the bag of frozen peas and carrots. I actually only had half a bag left, because we had used some for another dinner. Remember…this is about using what you’ve got. So only half a bag of frozen veggies? No problem! Just go with it, and adjust the amounts accordingly. So after these steps, it should look like the following pic:
As you are cooking the chicken, start your rice. I only had jasmine rice on hand (from cooking sushi!) so that’s what I used. But obviously, any rice will work. Whatever you’ve got!
Once the rice is ready, and your chicken/veggie mix is ready…it’s time to make some scrambled eggs! We only had 2 eggs left, but you can use up to four. You can add a little bit of milk if you want, your call.
Now it’s time to finish the dish! Add your rice and your scrambled eggs right into your chicken and veggies pan. Stir it all together, and add your sauces!
I used less sodium soy sauce, and a spicy stir fry sauce. This just gives it an added kick! (Note: I actually put too much spicy sauce in, and almost couldn’t eat it! So I guess less is more on the spicy sauce haha) It’s amazing what you can find in your refrigerator. I didn’t even know we had stir fry sauce!
And here you have it! How easy was that!?
So what do you think?? Easy? Hard? Yummy? Boring?? Let me know! xoxo ❤
