Spicy Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Good Morning!

So before I share the recipe with you I want to tell you about my awesome work out yesterday

I started off by going for a 2 mile run because it was 60 DEGREES OUT AND SUNNY..oh and I WORE A TANK TOP. how freaking cool is that?! I only went 2 miles because I honestly couldn’t even tell you the last time I went for a run, so I wanted to make sure I could run the whole time without needed to stop

mission accomplished..I ran 2 miles in about 17 minutes!

Once I got back from the run I wanted to do more so I went to my fitness board on pinterest for some pin-spiration (see what I did there?)

this was a lot more challenging than I thought it would be..especially the last superset with the burpees!

So onto the Spicy Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe

In case you’re wondering I typed this recipe up yesterday while sitting on my couch watching teen mom…

Don’t worry I went to the library last night to get some work done..and I NEVER go to the library..so points for me!

First I started out by sauteing cut up chicken pieces in a pan with some cooking spray over med-high heat

Then in the meantime I got together my veggies and stir fry sauce

the Stir fry sauce consisted of: 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp siracha sauce, 1 tsp fish sauce, 1/4 cup chicken stock, 1 tbsp corn starch

Cook the chicken until it is just browned (about 5 minutes)

then I transferred the chicken to a plate and added my veggies into the pan

Cook the veggies for about 5 minutes, stirring consistantely, and then add in the stir fry sauce

Stir the veggies in with the sauce and then add the chicken back in

Stir the chicken around and cook for another 3 minutes

Turn the heat off and add in 2 tbsp chopped cilantro and 1/4 cup chopped scallions

Serve with some brown rice and devour

this was definitely one of the better stir-fry dishes I’ve made in a while..the corn starch really helps thicken the sauce and the cilantro brightens the flavor, I wanted to go back for seconds but I resisted..but it was really great
