Chinese Take-Out may be tempting for dinner on a busy night, but with pre-cooked frozen chicken breast cubes and a bag of frozen (or random assortment of fresh) stir-fry vegetables, dinner is on its way to the table already!
Nourishing fast food: it's win-win!
For the skillet pictured here, I grabbed a bag of frozen pre-cooked chicken cubes out of the freezer, and while I was there, I grabbed the frozen sugar snap peas and chopped bell peppers. I peeled and sliced a handful of carrots and started steaming them in a bit of water in the skillet for a few minutes to soften them. I also chopped up an onion and a few garlic cloves and threw them in with the carrots. (Hmmm, if I had some mushrooms to saute that would have been yummy....)
At this point, the smells of supper on the way drew a Pickle into the kitchen who was more than willing to stir the skillet in supper anticipation.
When the carrots were nearly tender, I added my frozen collection. While those were cooking away their coolness, I found last night's leftover peas in the fridge. Hey, why not? In they went. Instead of regular soy sauce, I grabbed Bragg's Liquid Aminos. Made from soy, it is less salty and potent and is made from non-GMO soybeans. I just poured a bit of that over the top, stirred it through my now-heated-through dinner, and served it over some white basmati rice (which takes all of 6-7 minutes of cooking time itself!)
Yes, this was a fast food meal that will left us satisfied and nourished!
