This is my go-to weeknight “I need dinner on the table but I’m tired of the same-old same-old” meal. The other plus – my toddler and my husband love it. Win!
One of the better moments for me as a mom was the day my toddler decided to start trying everything I made for him. He went through a fairly long phase of not touching any sort of vegetable, and then one day he decided they weren’t so bad after all. Since then I have felt like super mom because I don’t have to make multiple things for supper – yes! He eats what we eat, and it has made me healthier in the process by adding more veggies and less fat to the dishes I cook. Fingers crossed that this isn’t just a phase too. I keep waiting for the day where all he wants is mac & cheese, crackers, and syrup.
This stir-fry is the simplest meal for any night of the week. You can even make your sauce ahead of time and throw it in the refrigerator until you are ready for it. Don’t eat meat? Great! Just omit the chicken and add more veggies. Need to feed more people? Great! Throw in another chicken breast, another 2-4 cups of veggies, and double the sauce. Have fun and make it your own!
