Nom Nom Nom: Stir Fry

Usually when my husband starts to get a craving for Stir Fry I will make it instead of getting take-out. It is so quick and easy to make and thanks to my mom who got me a rice cooker for Christmas (I swear, rice is ready in about 5 minutes!), I can have the meal ready for us in less than fifteen minutes.

I use whatever items we have in the fridge so this stir fry consisted of chicken, shrimp, carrots, onions, green, and yellow peppers. I also add broccoli but usually at the end and to one side since my husband doesn’t like broccoli.

  1. I add some olive oil to the skillet.
  2. Add chicken and the carrots(I added the carrots early to help get them a little soft)
  3. Once the first two ingredients are almost fully cooked, I added the rest of the vegetables and shrimp.
  4.  Once everything is cooked, I topped it off with Kikkoman Stir-Fry Sauce.
  5. While all of this is being cooked the rice cooker is working it’s magic (I will use either Jasmine or Brown Rice).

I will only season the chicken and shrimp with pepper beforehand because the sauce helps take care of the flavor. Plus, you don’t want too much sodium.

I always try to make extra so my husband can have some for the next day to take to work but that never happens. It gets completely devoured.

Edamame sprinkled with Sea Salt. YUM!
