Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir-fries are a perfect way to accomodate the entire family’s tastes — picky eaters can eat the veggies they like and leave the rest.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 cups drained baby corn
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 1-inch silces

  • 1 stick cinnamon (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cut the chicken breasts diagonally into long strips. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or deep, heavy skillet. Add the chicken and cinnamon stick and cook over high heat, stirring and tossing, until the chicken is no longer pnk. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside. Leave the cinnamon in the pan.
  3. Add garlic to the pan and stir-fry for a few seconds, until fragrant. Add the snow peas, baby corn and scallions and cook, stirring and tossing, until peas turn bright green.
  4. Add chicken back to the pan and stir in the chicken broth mixture. Cook over high heat for a minute or two until the sauce turns translucent.
