15 minute Stir Fry

I love Asian food so much but cooking it? Not so much. I feel like a lot of the recipes I find call for 700 ingredients, many of which I’ll only use once.  This little pearl of a recipe is quite simple with no crazy-unique ingredients and with a couple shortcuts, it comes together so fast.

I picked up a pre-packaged bag of stir fry veggies and threw in a few more snap peas (our fave). If I had a little more time, I would have cut up an onion and some mushrooms too.  While the noodles cooked, I sliced up and cooked the chicken. The stir fry sauce is super simple and tastes perfect. Not too salty, not too tangy, not too sweet…just right! My boys asked for seconds and thirds! I kind of love one pot meals like this. The protein, starch and veggies in one pot is just my style.  I served it with some fresh strawberries on the side.  And for the record, a little Sriracha on this is (imagine me kissing my finger tips like an Italian would). Yum. Hope you enjoy this well rounded and quick little meal.

Full recipe below.
