Stir Fry

This is very simple and healthy meal that can be prepared in under 30 minutes. It can also be prepared several hours ahead and cooked very quickly.

My Favorite Stir Fry
4 chicken breasts, cut up
2 packages fresh vegetable medley:broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower (from the produce section)
1/2 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
olive oil

Emeril's Sesame Asian Marinade (or your favorite)
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
Lawry's Seasoned Salt

Chop vegetables into desired size pieces. I like to cut the baby carrots in two lengthwise. (If you are using a marinade, pour over vegetables and chicken a couple of hours before cooking and refrigerate). Heat about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large fry pan or wok. Add chicken and vegetables. Cook on medium high heat, stirring constantly, until they reach the desired doneness. If you choose not to marinate, then add your seasonings while you are cooking. You can actually do both, but be careful not to over-season it. I like my vegetables crisp-tender, so it really takes only about 5 or 6 minutes.

You can serve this with brown rice, or all by itself. A piece of crusty bread on the side makes this meal complete!
