Skillet Chicken & Veggies over Rice

Dec 06 2016

I haven’t been feeling too perky and haven’t had much of an appetite. We had a few days of eating carry ins but last night I wanted home cooked. An easy meal is always cooked up in a skillet. I had chicken and veggies in the skillet over some yellow rice.

I bought some nice boneless skinless chicken breast strips. Some of them were tenders. For the veggies I had onions, garlic, red peppers, a few baby carrots, sugar snap peas and water chestnuts. I did the rice in my rice steamer. Seasoning was soy sauce and mirin. I added about a Tbs. of corn starch mixed in some water so give it a sauce coating.

I don’t know why but I have a devil of a time cutting the little tendon out of the chicken tenders. They make it look so easy on the cook shows.

I cooked the chicken in some olive oil, 5 minutes per side and removed from the skillet.

I added the chopped onions and garlic to a hot skillet with some more olive oil. I added the carrots and let cook until the onions were getting brown then added the peppers, water chestnuts and snap peas. I let it all heat a while then added the chicken and a few splashes of soy sauce and mirin. I stirred it all and then added the corn starch slurry and stirred some more.

I served it over the yellow rice that was done and tasted pretty good. The chicken at the front of my plate was the dogs share.
