Instructions
  1. First thing’s first- we need to cook the chicken (If it’s not already cooked). I usually slice or butterfly the breasts and sautee or grill them.
  2. Chop your veggies to the desired size and add them to a frying pan with a light layer of water at the bottom. If you want to avoid that combination of soggy and crunchy vegetables, be sure to separate them and cook them separately. For example, celery should cook on it’s own for 2-3 minutes before adding other vegetables like zucchini, carrots, peppers, snap peas, etc. mushrooms take the least time so don’t put them in until last (add them with the cooked chicken)
  3. Add your soy sauce/aminos and balsamic vinegar to your veggies. Also add any spices you want (garlic powder, basil/oregano, S&P etc.). Put a lid on your fry pan to speed up cooking, but be sure to watch your water level- you don’t want your veggies burning to the bottom of the pan. Continue to add incremental amounts of water (don’t go overboard!) as it evaporates from the pan.
  4. Cook your veggies for 5-10 minutes, or until right before tender. As your veggies cook, dice up your cooked chicken. Add your cooked chicken along with your quick-cooking vegetables (like mushrooms or spinach) and Sauté 2-3 more minutes. Let your small amount of water evaporate in your pan before removing from heat. Let cool slightly before eating.
Recipe Notes

**PRO TIP: Try mixing in my Bali-inspired peanut sauce instead of your regular spices!
