Thai Stir-Fry

I love eating at the Chinese or Japanese restaurants in mall food courts.  I also love that they are usually the exact same foods at each place…I just choose the one with the shortest line.  This recipe was inspired by a craving for some of that mall food.  My guess that it is much healthier when cooked at home, which is always a bonus.

  2. Heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat in skillet or wok.
  3. Add the chicken to hot olive oil and cook until no longer pink in the middle.
  4. Remove the chicken from the skillet or wok and set aside.
  5. Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet or wok.
