- Chicken - I use skinless, organic chicken breasts. They are very easy to find in the grocery stores, just make sure to read your labels. I do understand everything is very expensive now so I like to buy a bunch when they go on sale.
- Bell peppers - I like to make sure my red peppers are firm and shiny with no soft spots.
- Onion - Again I make sure my onions are firm with no soft spots.
- Olive oil - I like to use this EVOO for its light taste that makes it perfect for baking and cooking.
- Sesame Oil - This has a light, neutral flavor and adds a delicious flavor in many Thai and Asan dishes. I use this one all the time.
- Chicken Broth - I always use reduced sodium and organic chicken broth.
- Coconut Aminos or soy sauce
- Brown sugar alternative or brown sugar if not sugar free
- Garlic - Every delicious stir fry needs garlic, right? I use garlic in almost every savory recipe.
- Ginger paste - This has such a wonderful earthy, spicy taste and gives a distinctive flavor to stir fry. I used this ginger paste but you can also use fresh ginger root. If you do use fresh ginger, keep in mind that 1 inch raw ginger equals 1 tablespoon ginger paste.
- Sesame seeds (optional) - I love to add these sesame seeds for a crispy, crunchy, nutty topping. It adds a great crunchy texture.
How To Make Chicken Pepper Stir Fry
This delicious and healthy dish only takes about 30 minutes to prepare. It's loaded with flavor and might look fancy but this is one of my go-to's on busy weeknights.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat on the stove. Add the chicken to the skillet, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Saute the chicken until it is about halfway cooked. Mix the peppers and onions into the skillet, and saute' until the vegetables begin to become tender, and the chicken is cooked through.
In a bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce.
Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables, and saute for several minutes before serving.
You can use other vegetables in this recipe if you'd like. I've made this with broccoli and asparagus and I bet any vegetable would be delicious in here.
You can wrap these up in lettuce wraps, serve over cauliflower rice or brown rice. This is one of those recipes that is extremely versatile but just as delicious on it's own.
If you want to use fresh ginger root instead of ginger paste, use about ¾ inch of ginger root. Also, you can use ¾ teaspoon of powdered ginger if that's what you have on hand.
