Well, I am trying so hard to like my veggies... but man, I am just not a fan. The normal "stirfry" bag has water chestnuts (blargh), mushrooms (nope), red pepper (meh), broccoli carrots, and celery (tolerable). So looking through the other combinations that our Meijer offers, I stumbled upon a "Fiesta" mix.
The Fiesta mix had red beans, white beans, garbanzo beans, carrots, broccoli, snap peas, and red pepper. Sign. me. up. All things that I enjoy. So I grabbed one of those (mistake, should have grabbed more than one... oh well, next time) and decided to make a fiesta stir fry with chicken for lunch one day.
Looks yummy eh? It's low calorie and has just a hint of fiesta flavor when you add the spices and chicken. A great way to get your veg in! :)
Want to make it? You'll need:
• 1 small chicken breast, thawed
• 1 bag of Meijer Fiesta Style Mixed Vegetables
• Onion Powder
• Chili Powder
• Garlic Powder
You'll also want:
• A pot of boiling water
• A little bit of Olive Oil
• A resealable bowl with lid
• A colander
Cook your veg and chicken together. I put a lid on and let it boil for about 5-7 minutes. Once the vegetables are just soft (not mush!), remove and drain in a colander into a sink.
Place the vegetables and chicken into a resealable bowl (one with a lid), and drizzle the mix LIGHTLY with some olive oil. This gives the spices something to stick to on the veg. Dash the cumin, chili powder, onion, and garlic in to your taste. I gave just a light dash of each. Now place the lid on tightly, and shake. This will help distribute the spices evenly.
Serve this one hot - It doesn't taste super awesome cold. If you're not following a low calorie regiment right now, you could definitely add some salsa, add some cheese, put in tortillas or something different. :) We ate it just as you see it.
Hope you enjoyed this simple recipe! :)
