QUICK STIR FRY

This has become one of my most favorite meals, and it is quick and easy to prepare.

Note, the directions are for one serving, so just increase as needed for more servings.  All ingredient amounts are approximate.  

The picture shows a couple of sauces I have used.  
And sorry - I forgot to put the cashews in the picture!



1. Assemble ingredients:
        Frozen stir fry vegetables
        Onions - green or yellow cut up
        Chicken (canned, fresh or frozen - if frozen, thaw)
        Oriental sauce
        Cashews 

2. Heat skillet to medium high

3. Add cooking oil to generously cover bottom of pan 
    (I like to use olive oil)

4. For each serving, add:
         2-3 handfuls of frozen stir fry vegetables
         1/4-1/2 cup chopped onion

5. Stir while cooking for about 5 minutes

6. Add:   1/2 can chicken, drained, OR equivilant of
               1 chicken tender, cut up and thoroughly cooked* 

7. Cook about one minute while continuing to stir.

8. Add:
        1/4 cup cashews 
        Your favorite oriental sauce - enough to lightly 
           cover ingredients, and continue to stir for about 
           one minute. 

Serve as is or over ric

*NOTE: if using fresh chicken, cut into pieces and cook in skillet first, then set aside. Make sure chicken is thoroughly cooked. Add chicken at the end with the cashews and sauce.

OPTION: Instead of chicken, use cut up meatballs. I used frozen fully cooked meatballs, and microwaved them enough to thaw a little, so I could cut them into pieces. Add as step #6. This is especially good with Panda Express Mandarin Sauce. Very tasty!
