Chicken Stir Fry

... another "needs must" meal, using whatever I have available, sometimes some odd combinations.

This is breakfast, something to get me started and push me on ... I'm going food shopping before this fresh snow undoes all our hard work yesterday clearing ice off the one road that is now open out of our valley.

What is it, then? It's chicken stir fry.

One breast, sliced through and cut down to strips.

The other ingredients are red onion, white cabbage, radish, red pepper, garlic, ginger, chilli, orange, spring onion, black pepper and fish sauce. Damn it! I forget to put in mushrooms.

So, with all the ingredients segmented, cut, sliced and diced ...

Wake up! Time to fry!

First, the chicken in some coconut oil, then the red onion, garlic, ginger, chilli, red pepper and fish sauce. Cook that through and allow the juices and the oils to reduce and darken.

Heat off, in with the spring onions and radish, folding through.

Plate up with a few orange segments on the plate, then spoon over the stir fry, dotting a few more orange segments in as you go.

Garnish with herbs, parsley in my case, cayenne pepper and black pepper.

Hot, filling and a good pack of "get up and go" energy. Right! I'm off hunting and gathering ...

  1. If it tastes just HALF as good as your lovely pic makes it look, this I have GOT to try!

    1. Haha! Thank you. Yes ... I am very happy to say that it tasted twice as good as it looked!

      This was a simple "put together" meal of all sorts of things I just found in my fridge. We were quite literally snowed in ... not even able to walk out due to really strong drifting, Our minds, our invention, our creativity is (I believe) our strongest asset.
