This was a simple and tasty stir fry!
1/2 pound of large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
2 thin chicken breasts sliced into small pieces
1 cup of broccoli florets
1 large carrot peeled and sliced thin round pieces
small yellow bell pepper sliced into thin pieces
1 cup of Chinese pea pods
1/2 sweet onion sliced thin
small can of water chestnuts rinsed and drained
fresh basil – 3 large pieces
1 jalapeno sliced with seeds removed.
4 tablespoons sesame oil
salt to taste
soy sauce to taste
add the sesame oil to a hot frying pan or wok… whatever you have available.
add the chicken and cook for approximately four minutes until no longer pink. Remove and place on a plate.
add shrimp and cook while tossing around for a few minutes. Shrimp cook very fast. Remove and put with Chicken.
add remaining vegetables to the pan, if needed add a bit more oil and sautee for a few minutes…add a few splashes on soy sauce and a pinch of salt. You want the veggies fork tender, and have a little bite to them still. Introduce the chicken and shrimp to the veggies, toss about and you are ready to enjoy!
Feel free to serve on a bed of rice or with noodles. I choose to leave out the carbs. Bon Appetite!
