Honey and Ginger Chicken Stir Fry

So as a ridiculously poor student, I like to make things as simple as possible, but as someone who grew up eating well-flavoured Asian food i cant stand anything too bland. This recipe is super easy, yet tastes amazing! It will take you about half an hour to prepare… not kidding. So if you’re like me and have labs or tutorials that run late and you end up far too lazy to cook anything interesting, this is pretty much perfect, ‘cause you can make it quickly and then freeze the leftovers for another long day.

1 onion
5 cloves [or more] garlic
4 chicken breast pieces [omit this if you are a vego]
half a packet of frozen vegetables [i like the asian style ones… lotsa capsicum. Alternatively, you can use fresh anything, it depends on what you like. Frozen is generally cheaper and easier to deal with.]
1 can or packet of honey ginger stir fry sauce. [or to be honest, you can substitute with any other sauces you find interesting. Honey and ginger is a good place to start though.]
salt and pepper to taste

Slice the onion and crush the garlic. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces or thin strips.

Fry the onion and garlic in a little oil until fragrant. Add the chicken and fry until the chicken is cooked. [can’t be too careful with chicken!!] This should take about 10 minutes.

Add the frozen veggies and fry for another five minutes, then add the entire can or packet of sauce [as you can tell, I prefer cooking in bulk rather than 1-serving meals. Keeps me fed when I’m too lazy to cook 😉 most of my meals are suitable to be stored in the freezer.]

Mix well and keep mixing while it fries until the vegetables are defrosted and cooked. If it is too watery, turn the heat down and simmer for a few minutes until it gets to a consistency you like.
Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve with rice or noodles! 🙂
