Simple Chinese Stir-fry

Here's what I did for dinner tonight- SO EASY I wanted to make sure I wrote this down because the flavor wasn't overbearing but still was yummy.
Very often I forget to write how I made a sauté dish & I can't seem to repeat it, so I hope this little blog helps me out on this one :)

Here it is:
1 cup uncooked Basmanti Rice
2 chicken breasts
4 cups (ish) of costco's frozen stir-fry veggies (no sauce included!!)
Rice vinegar
Soy sauce
Garlic salt
Sesame seed oil
Olive oil
Natures seasoning

I'm sorry I don't have ratios for the seasonings but I just sprinkled here & there :)

So I cooked the rice,

- boil 2 cups water, add 1 cup rice, bring back to a boil and then cook covered on low for 20 min.


Cut chicken into small cubes and sprinkle lightly with garlic salt.
Sauté chicken with about 1 T of olive oil, a quick drizzle of rice vinegar, 1/2 (ish) T of sesame seed oil and 1/8 cup of soy sauce. Don't overcook!! Once done, set aside, covered.

Sauté veggies in a bitty drizzle of olive oil (and in the same pan you just cooked the chicken in & the flavor from that will be on the veggies)

When the veggies are almost done, check your rice.

When it's done, sprinkle natures seasoning on it, drizzle some olive oil & add 1 T of butter, mix it all in to the rice & whalla! Yummy rice!

I put my chicken & veggies in the same bowl just side by side and serve with the rice.

Emma loved it so much that she's taking it to school in her lunch tomorrow, cold!
