This is a super quick, easy and fairly inexpensive dinner. My recipe serves about 4, and when I made it for my boyfriend and I we ate it for dinner and then had leftovers for lunch. To make it I fried sliced chicken in a small amount of sesame oil, with both garlic and ginger paste. When the chicken was cooked through add pretty much whatever vegetables you desire (I used broccoli, zucchini, onion and snow peas). Then add about 3 tbs tamari or regular soy sauce and stirfry for a few minutes. Do not overcook as you still want there to be a bit of crunch left in the vegetables, and this ensures more vitamins and minerals are retained. When cooked serve with basmati or brown rice and sprinkle with cashews or peanuts if desired.
Chicken breast is low in fat but very high in protein and tends to have less calories than other cuts such as chicken thigh. Chicken also contains iron, which aids in the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin.
