Ready to fly Oriental Stir Fry $5.09


Rice for four
1 pound chicken $2.10
1 bag (2+ pounds) oriental flavored stir fry veggies $2.99
Total $ $5.09

cook four servings rice in your rice steamer or on the stove top according to direction.  If you don't have a rice steamer, seriously consider one - when I got mine as a gift from my MIL, I was totally put out by having it... seriously, the thing cooks by weight, not time.  I don't know ... it's magic, it's one of those things we don't have to understand, we just have to accept and move on.  get yourself a rice steamer.

Prepare chicken by cutting into approx. one inch cubes.  In a large fry pan or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat until hot.  Put in chicken, cover, cook until steam escapes around cover.  Remove meat and cover with aluminum foil or an inverted plate.
Return to heat and warm another tablespoon of oil, then add 1 bag (more than 2 pounds!) Asia Specialties Oriental Vegetables - cover and cook for 5 min. sirring occasionally.

Add 1/2 to 3/4 of the Asia Specialties Sauce packet AND prepared chicken to the fry pan or wok. Cook covered for five minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables are cooked.

Stir and serve

My kiddos wanted "orange chicken", so I splurged and bought the sweet & sour flavoring at Aldi ($1.79), then instead of mixing my chicken into the stir fry I sauted the chicken in a separate frying pan then coated with sweet & sour flavoring ... if you saute long enough it will get gooey and sticky just like the take out kind.  We served it along side the veggies.
