Chicken Veggie Stir-fry thing!
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:18:09 PM »
Hey everyone, I have never posted a recipe before, but this is a favorite at my house. It was actually an experiment, and now we eat it all the time:)

1lb chicken breasts, cut into short, thin strips
1 head broccoli, washed and cut into bite size pieces ( we like the stems to)
1 head cauliflower, washed, and cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms (if desired)
Oregano to taste, I use about three or four good shakes out of my jar..quite a bit.
Tarragon, about two shakes
1/8 tsp Garlic powder,
a few dashes of white pepper
Sea Salt to taste.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sharp cheddar or asiago cheese (we mixed the two once, and it was great!)

First, I saute the chicken on high heat, until it is thoroughly cooked, but not brown. (I use a bit of water, but I am sure you could use cooking spray)
turn down the heat and add the water, veggies and spices. Mix thoroughly, then, cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until the veggies are tender but not mushy. Turn off heat, sprinkle cheese on top, then recover pan. Wait a few minutes for the cheese to melt, and serve.

My kids love this dish, and it gives them their protein AND veggies in one quick, easy dish, and I don't get all the carbs! I really hope you guys like it :) Thanks! Renae

Umpa: My son is actually DETERMINED to teach himself to cook! LOL I get quite the interesting things happening here.. that's what happens with a creative, food-loving, hyperactive kid ~giggles~

Beebs: I was actually thinking that same question to myself...methinks we will make it tonight, and see what we come up with as far as serving sizes, and read all of our labels to see the carbs, thanks for asking:)

Was there a carb count per serving given?  Did I miss it somewhere?
