I have been cooking some dishes that have not been so healthy. Today I decided I needed something lighter. Insert chicken stir fry! Plus I had some ground chicken in my fridge that needed to be used, along with tons of different vegetables.
This recipe I use brussel sprouts, sugar snap peas, spinach, and carrots. You can really use any vegetables you like. Onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, just whatever you have on hand.
I made this with an oyster sauce. If you have never cooked with it, you are missing out. It doesn’t taste like oysters at all, it has more of a savory flavor. It brings out the umami flavor in the dish. Serve along side of brown rice or quinoa and you have the perfect health meal!
