I knew there would be days when I did not feel like writing an entry. When I knew I was going to be without a computer and had to rely on the kindness of libraries in a strange city I thought ahead and uploaded some pictures to help keep the juices flowing. Now that I am at home again and have full access to ...well everything, I'm just blank!
So, I'm going to do WHAT'S FOR DINNER MOMMIE or better known as I'M HUNGRY WOMAN!This is my husbands favorite. Granted, he picks out the chicken and usually leaves the veggies behind so that when I go to warm it up the next day looking forward to some great left over action....it's all veggies! Ha!
This recipe was passed down to me from my good friend Barry in Florida, He was visiting one time and came over and cooked dinner. This was his dish and over the 20 years since, I have perfected it. Perfected it!!
First off, take about one pound (or two if you have a Joe type person lurking about) of chicken breasts and cut them up into big bite size pieces and place them in a bowl or plastic bag and marinate in soy sauce and some minced garlic. You can also toss in some flavored olive oil, Worchesire sauce etc. You can go as wild as you want. I usually marinate for a couple of hours.
Chop up a ton of veggies. I usually chop up...
two medium size zucchinis,
two yellow squash,
one green pepper,
a package of sliced mushrooms (whole if you want to slice them yourself)
a second clove of garlic minced up.
Sometimes I'll throw in broccoli if I have it.
Also have on hand -
one sliced tomato
Swiss cheese, sliced or shredded does not matter. About four slices or 1/2 cup
Salt and pepper to season to taste.
And the magic ingredient Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour...any seasoned flour will do.
Ain't Vegetable's Grand.
Take the marinated chicken and coat it with the Seasoned flour by throwing it all in a bag and shake shake shake.
Take a wok and heat about 1/3 cup of oil until it sizzles. I usually will test it by tossing in a piece of the chicken. When it's hot enough toss in the rest and wok it!! Wok it good!!
It will look like this at first.
Then they will turn a beautiful golden brown as you toss them around to cook evenly.
Add all the veggies except the tomatoes. It will look like a lot, but it cooks down and then it will.......
Cook about five minutes or until the veggies are crunchy not limp....
........look like this! Season to taste with salt and pepper or whatever you like. Maybe hot maybe not.
Add the tomatoes. Isn't that color beautiful!
Then the cheese
Cover and allow cheese to melt. It will look like this when finished!
I serve it over rice. Every so often I will put it over angel hair pasta.
I call it.....I don't have a name for it!! Any suggestions?
