Love the concept of quick mid week recipes to keep us in the kitchen and away from takeaways. Great recipe to which I would add loads of other vegetables (if making for adults) that don’t need chopping like sugar snap peas, mange tout, baby sweetcorn and beansprouts. For vegetarians, I would add a handful of tofu or noodles to replace the chicken. I like marinating the chicken in garlic, ginger and chilli from the morning or night before if time to add depth of flavour too!
Weeknight cooking needs to be quick. While I generally get home from work at a decent hour, my family has gotten used to eating on the early side.
My father-in-law managed a grocery store for many years. He would often work the afternoon and evening shift and would take a lunch break prior to the evening rush. He would come home and my wife’s family would eat around 4PM. That history, plus a large amount of evening activities for the kids (soccer, karate, story time at the library, etc…) often meant getting dinner on the table by 5:30.
When I make the menu for the week, I will sometime fail to notice that something takes 30 minutes to prepare and then sits in the oven for an hour. Needless to say, those then get bumped for the weekend.
This quick and delicious stir fry is great for weeknight cooking.
