How to make Weight Watchers chicken stir fry:
This is a really easy recipe. Just a few steps and we have a delicious meal on the table. The first thing we need to do is prep our ingredients. Once you have your veggies and chicken chopped up into uniform size pieces we can begin the cooking process.
We’ll be using a non-stick skillet over high heat, the vegetable oil and the sesame oil is used to fry up our ginger, garlic, chicken and veggies. We just need to cook the chicken first for a few minutes until it’s browned.
After the chicken is cooked about halfway we can cook the veggies before adding the chicken back into the skillet. Once the chicken is cooked the rest of the way through and the veggies are tender we can top with the cashews and serve!
- 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon Ginger, Grated
- 3 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
- 1 Pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, 1/2 Inch Pieces
- 1 Large Sweet Red Pepper, 1 Inch Pieces
- 2 Cups Broccoli Florets
- 2 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 20 Dry Roasted Salted Cashews, Roughly Chopped
- Heat your skillet over high heat with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. Add the ginger, garlic and chicken. Cooke for about 4 minutes until browned. Remove and set aside for later use.
- Next add the rest of the oil and vegetables to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the chicken back into the skillet and add the soy sauce. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
- Sprinkle the cashews on top and serve!
