Lemon Chicken Stir Fry

Eating better. Everyone is on the bandwagon. At least they were until 40ish days ago. Haha!

I always try. But sometimes a good pizza really does fill the carb void. And since I’m horrible making pizza dough, it’s a few and far between treat for us. But lucky for me the hubs loves fresh food.

When I saw that chicken breasts was on sale at my local Fred Meyer I had to pick it up. And I had a coupon for a few dollars of meat. So win win. I’m in! Scavenged the fridge and grabbed a bunch of fresh veggies to mix. And since I wanted a Mediterranean flair I picked green veggies to go with the lemon I was craving. Now the deets!

Recipe:

– 1 pound chicken breasts

– 3 cups veggies – I used onion, asparagus, celery, zucchini & mushrooms. Use what you have and save a few bucks.

– 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

– 2 lemons – zest & juice squeezed

– Salt/pepper

– 1 Tbsp Mrs Dash salt free seasoning

Directions:

Brown the chicken (add some s/p to taste) in a non stick pan while dicing up your veggies. Make sure to cut them the same size to have equal cooking time.

Pull the chicken out to let it rest prior to cutting. Throw the veggies, 1 Tbsp Olive Oil, s/p, Mrs Dash and half the lemon juice in and stir it up! Cook for about 4-5 minutes. 

Dice up your chicken after letting it rest 3-4 minutes and throw back in the pan with the other Tbsp oil & remains lemon juice and zest.

Viola 1-2 minutes you are done.

I made this in about 15 minutes altogether which is something I love. Easy fresh meal! Gave me enough time to cooking, prep, empty the dishwasher, reload it & flip out laundry to the dryer. Success!
