Why yes I just typed out that title.
“Super Mom Stir Fry”.
Who am I right now?
Just Mom. Not to be confused with Super Mom, although I like to lead you to believe that I am. In all reality, most days are filled with kids not wanting to do fill in the blank and me just trying to hold it together ’til bedtime. You may recall this Motherhood post.
Dinnertime may just be the worse part of the day. It used to by my favorite, but with no hubby home to help with the madness, I am back and forth between cooking and holding a cranky baby all the while fending off older children who are trying to snatch anything they can find in the pantry.
This is why
I drink find ways to cut cooking times down as much as possible. I’m just forced to.
So, this is one of those pushed-into-a-corner-to-get-dinner-on-the-table-fast meals and it checks all of my boxes: healthy, easy, fast, good leftovers.
My secret? FROZEN VEGGIES. I found an “Asian Medley” in the freezer section and started using those for all my stir fry concoctions and haven’t looked back. It is such a huge time saver! I basically just add chicken and onions to my pan, add in these frozen veggies with a little homemade stir fry sauce and THAT IS IT. It takes mayyyybe 20 minutes to make if you’re working slow. But I can get this done in as quick as 10 minutes, mainly because I have this recipe memorized.
Of course you serve it with rice and eat it while its hot! If I have some cashews on hand, I’ll throw those into the mix too. It’s a great recipe to have on hand 🙂
Printable recipe below! Have a great day, friends!
