Finally! Some healthy food!

I wanted to cook something healthy for dinner tonight because I feel like I've gotten away from the healthy lifestyle I had been trying to get myself into. With the weekend at Hershey Park, and all the other birthday celebrations, this week has been full of unhealthy foods. I knew I had some chicken breasts in the freezer, so I took those out this morning and decided to do a chicken and veggie stir fry. I had zucchinis and onions and garlic and green peppers. So I used all of them up. This is the first time I have made a stir fry without soy sauce and I did not miss it. I served it with basmati rice and it was delicious.

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry
~2 tbsps olive oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 green peppers, cut into small strips
2 medium zucchini, chopped
salt and pepper
1 chicken (or beef) bullion cube

Heat oil in a large saute pan or wok. Add garlic and onion and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and saute until almost done. Add veggies and crumbled bullion cube and stir fry until done. Serve over rice of your choice!


  1. That looks great! I like the idea of the crumbled bouillon cube.

  2. Sounds excellent. I need to make stir-fry again soon.
