Yesterday, for the first time in ages, I finally cooked something that was not just “okay” and more or less filling, but actually ridiculously tasty. I’m so proud of myself! Not that I should be, it was really easy. But hey, cheap, quick, easy, delicious – that’s pretty much all you want from a meal, right? I actually liked it so much, I cooked it two nights in a row.
Chicken Stir Fry
Ingredients (serves 1):
1 Packet of noodles
1 Cup of veggie mix
1 Cup of bean sprouts
½ Chicken breast
1. Start off by cutting the chicken breast into small strips and tossing them in about a tablespoon of soy sauce.
2. If your veggies need cooking (mine were frozen), do so. When they’re done, drain and set aside. Heat a pan or wok with a little bit of oil and fry off the chicken.
3. Add bean sprouts and other veggies, keep stirring. Prepare the noodles as per instruction – probably something like “put in boiling water for three minutes, drain and rinse in cold water”.
4. Add the noodles to the pan and stir them in. Add soy sauce to taste. Done!
As you can probably tell, the dish in the picture doesn’t have any bean sprouts in it. That was because I didn’t have enough cash left to buy any yesterday, so I made up for that today (and it made it so much better. Yum yum sprouts).
In the future, I will probably try the dish with halloumi instead of chicken, or maybe tofu. Should make for a nice vegetarian/vegan version. 🙂
