Alright ladies – here’s a healthier “single” portion. This is a stir fry I made several times when I lived alone, it’s quick and easy and you can eat it on the couch in front of the TV and no one will give you dirty looks! Man – sometimes I miss living alone – all the messes you encounter are your own. No one else to be upset with over the dishes in the sink or the lasts of the wine being consumed.
If you want to make this for a whole bunch of people just add more ingredients - easy to do. Mike and I make this one for ourselves and just use a full pound of chicken, a whole red pepper, 1/2 red onion, a bigger zucchini and usually a handful of something green – shelled edamame or pea pods. We also add a few crushed red pepper flakes, since we like a bit of kick at our house and this stir fry is on the sweet side!
Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
2 chicken breasts
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1 small zucchini, sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced - if you love red onion, use more!
1 cup of cooked rice or noodles - go with whichever you want
Equal parts teriyaki sauce and orange juice concentrate - 1/4 cup of each is probably enough, unless you're like me and you like the sauce to drip into your rice or noodles, I used 1/3 cup of each!
*Buy a can of the OJ concentrate, if you have leftovers store it in the freezer in tupperware it will be just fine!
Fry up the chicken with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, set aside. Pour the sauce and chopped veggies into the skillet and cook through, add the chicken back in and heat together. Serve over rice or noodles!
