Spicy Chicken Strips Stir-Fried Recipe

Poultry is very popular in my kitchen. The recent discovery include ways to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Besides grilling, baking and using chicken breasts for chicken broth, I like to stir fry them in strips.

I have been enjoying the tremendous versatility that chicken meat, white or dark bring to the table. This dish consists of chicken breast strips and mainly bell peppers. You can make it spicy or opt for mild depending on your family's preference.

2 tlbs soy sauce
1 tlbs cornstarch
1 tlbs rice vinegar
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips

2 tlbs vegetable oil
1/4 cup chopped 1/2 inch green onion
1 tlbs minced fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cut orange bell pepper
1 cut yellow bell pepper
2 tlbs fresh lemon
1/2 to 1 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp salt

1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl and mix into a paste. Add chicken, mix well, cover. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add onions, ginger, and garlic. Sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add chicken mixture, and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in bell peppers, lemon juice, white pepper, and salt; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until chicken is done.

Eating chicken instead of beef has helped me loose a few pounds. Those safe diet pills still come in handy once in a while, it helps curve the appetize.

  1. looks yummy and i like it being simply done, will have to give this recipe a try too, thanks for sharing your recipe, Amanda.

  2. I love skinless and boneless chicken breasts too. It's very easy to make a quick meal for me also.

    This looks so yummy, and I see that you're using sweet peppers!

  3. Hi Amanda -- This looks good. Since we are on a long-running 'health kick' at our house we would also put in a bunch of frozen (or fresh in season) vegetables.
    Krogers sells a prepackaged stir fry mix of vegetables, as do other grocery stores I'm sure. We also us them for soups or just a 'side' to some other food entree. They cook up fine in the microwave.

  4. Hmm that does look yummy! I love finding new ways to do the chicken too!
