Easy Chicken Stir Fry
I loved today's CrossFit wod, but WOW am I ready for bed! Heavy cleans and muscle ups are just full body fatigue! I thought a quick & easy stir fry dinner would be a great way to spend less time in the kitchen and more time in bed! Not to mention I am really enjoying the 5 Chinese spice blend and a stir fry would would be another opportunity to use it! This was super easy and could be made with any vegetables you choose (a good opportunity to go through that vegetable bin)! Enjoy...
Chicken, 4 breasts cut in thin strips
1/4 C coconut aminos (soy sauce substitute)
1 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch square ginger root, minced
2 zucchini, sliced
3 bunches baby bok choy, chopped
1 C grated carrots
about 2 C shiitake mushrooms
1 tsp. 5 Chinese spice powder
1/4 C chicken broth
Marinate chicken strips in 1/4 C coconut aminos while you're cutting the vegetables. Heat olive oil is a saute pan over med-hi heat. Saute chicken strips until cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside. Turn heat down to medium and saute garlic and ginger for about 1 minute. Add zucchini, mushrooms, Chinese spice and chicken broth. Cook until zucchini is crisp tender. Add chicken back to pan, and bok choy. Cook until bok choy wilts and chicken is heated through. Serve by itself or on a bed of cauliflower rice!
Hope you enjoy! :-)
