Chicken Stir Fry
Chicken Stir Fry is one of those dishes I can make with my eyes closed!
It’s a family favorite. I’m sure I probably followed a recipe at some point — maybe back when I was single, living with my roomie, Trish. Ages ago! (Let’s not even think about that!)
I haven’t followed a recipe or measured anything for this dish for at least the last couple decades. And, of course, the dish has evolved over time.
For example, I’ve found that squeezing a little lemon over the chicken results in some very tender chicken! (Thank you, Benihana, for that tip!)
And the addition of a little fish sauce is the most recent improvement to this stir fry. Not a “fishy” flavor — just an awesome flavor! I thank my daughter, Alyssa, for this clever tip!
Of course, you can make a perfectly delicious Chicken Stir Fry without the fish sauce, but why would you?!
Today I slowed things down a bit to record measurements and technique so I could share this Chicken Stir Fry with you. Serve it with white or brown rice. Wench Fried Rice would be an excellent side dish as well!
I hope this Chicken Stir Fry brings as many happy mealtime memories to your family as it has to mine!
