Easiest Stir Fry On the Planet

My roommate finally asked me to stop hogging the pantry (she’s going to learn to cook soon and needs space! Yay!). I found all sorts of mysterious dry goods in there in the process, including a jar of General Tsao’s sauce from Trader Joe’s. Seems like a good way to get a fast and healthy stir fry dinner in sometime during the week. Use any veggies you have in the fridge – this is what I had.

serves 4

Here’s what I used:

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced randomly into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • couple of handfuls of green beans, chopped in half
  • couple of handfuls of snow peas
  • 1 inch knob of ginger, peel scraped off w/back of a spoon & minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 scallions, sliced on a diagonal for garnish
  • 1 lb of chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 bottle TJ’s General Tsao’s sauce
  • white rice, cooked to package directions

Here’s what I did:

  1. Heat canola oil in large saute pan. Season chicken w S&P and brown on all sides, 7-8 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from pan and reserve for later.
  2. Add garlic, ginger, and chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add bell pepper, green beans, and snow peas and saute for about 8-10 minutes. Season veggies w S&P.
  3. Add chicken and General Tsao’s sauce to the pan and heat through, 3-4 minutes. Garnish with scallions and serve over rice. Done and done.
