I love quick and easy dinners. Most of the time I am busy in the kitchen in the hotel I work in, so I don’t get much time at home to prepare dinner. When I do get the evening off and have time to cook I enjoy coming up with different easy to make recipes. I love fresh and simple vegetable dishes. This dish is a simple stir fry with some fresh garden vegetables and chicken. I served the dish with classic white rice, but you can even enjoy the dish without the rice if you want to

go for a more healthy alternative. Here I used zucchini, white onion, and cabbage as my vegetables for the sauté. I bought at the butcher sliced chicken, and really within 15 minutes you have a fresh and yummy dinner. I sauté the vegetables until brown and tender, then I add in my chicken and seasonings, and it’s ready to go.

I usually like to sauté in a more neutral oil like canola oil or grape seed oil but in this recipe I use olive oil because it gives a nice crisp and caramel taste to the vegetables.

Of course you can use brown rice instead of brown rice. But I decided in this recipe to skip the soy sauce and other store bought sauces and chose to keep the recipe on the fresh and healthy side. Hope you enjoy!
