Stir Fry

Who doesn’t love some Stir Fry? It’s such a great way to eat a lot of vegetables and protein. You can pretty much take it any  direction with what ever flavors you wish. Today I went for asian flavors, next week maybe more mediterranian.

The beauty of this is dish being able to use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge and cooking everything in one pan.  For me it’s all about textures  and interplay between crunchy vegetables and chicken. Be adventurous, buy what ever produce looks fresh and tasty and mix it up.
