Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Bell Pepper, Broccoli & Carrots

Happy Friday!  Looking for a quick and easy meal before you begin your weeked?

Stir Fry is one of the easiest dishes to make.  One of the things I love most is, it is a meal that allows you to clean out your fridge leaving you with a wonderful dinner!

After this weeks meals I was left with a few random veggies so I decided to use them up in a stir fry.  If you have been following along with my meals, you too have these ingredients in your kitchen.  If not, substitute!  That is the great thing about stir fry, the ability to combine different veggies for a tasty end result!

This is my version from last night. 

Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Bell Pepper, Broccoli & Carrots


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
brown rice, I used boil-in-a-bag instant rice
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1/4 head of broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
1/4 red onion, cut into strips
2 small carrots, shaved with vegetable peeler into ribbons
2 tablespoons fresh scallions, click here for tips on how to get the most from your scallions 
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger, click here for fresh ginger storage tips
low sodium soy sauce, to taste
hoisen sauce , to taste
roasted red chili paste (optional), to taste
olive oil
sesame seeds

Start by slicing the raw chicken lengthwise into bite-size slices. 

Cut all the veggies.

In a large skillet, coat the pan with the olive oil and heat  over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink. 

Add the onions and also grate 1 teaspoon (or more) of ginger into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onion begins to soften. 

Start boiling the rice in a medium sauce pan. 

Next, add the bell peppers.  Cook an additional 2 minutes. 

Lastly, add the broccoli, carrots and scallions.  Also, add the hoisen sauce, soy sauce and roasted red chili paste.  

Serve over brown rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  

Just like that you have created a delicious dish in under 15 minutes!!
