I could just as well call this the “Everyone has these ingredients in their fridge” Stir-Fry. I turned to mire poix (onions, carrots, celery) for the carbs, chicken breast for the protein, a little olive oil for the fat, Sambal for heat and cilantro because no meal is complete without it. The result was a plateful of spicy goodness.
While I’m not a huge fan of the boneless, skinless chicken breast, I used it here because most people have them on hand. I prefer chicken thighs, but if you break the BS breasts down and cook them as I show in the video, they remain moist and taste delicious.
As always, be creative, use what you have on hand, and above all, “Keep It Paleo!”
(Freshly squeezed lime juice would go well with this too…)
10 Minute, Zoned Out, Spicy Chicken Stir Fry
“Keep It Paleo!”
We are just using one chicken breast per serving. After cooking one chicken breast, depending on its size weighs in around 5-6 oz, and with 1oz of chicken breast equaling one block, we have 5-6 protein blocks if you use the whole chicken breast. Remember to take out what you don’t want to eat.
With 2/3 of a cup of onions equaling one block, then we end up with three blocks from the two cups of onions we use. We also get one block from the cup of carrots and 1 block from the 2 cups of celery.
You will use fats as needed to cook the food. Keep in mind that 1/3 of a teaspoon equals one block, so one table spoon is 9 blocks. Don’t over do the oils when cooking it and it will keep the meal nice and balanced.
This meal is quite balanced out. Cook it up and enjoy!!!
