The food you consume has SO MUCH to do with your overall health (or weight loss).


This recipe is from Weight Watchers:

Stir-Fried Chicken with Broccoli, Red Peppers and Cashews

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp ginger root, finely chopped
  • 3 small garlic clove(s), finely chopped
  • 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large sweet red pepper(s), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cup broccoli, florets
  • 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 20 items cashews, roasted, unsalted, roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil, ginger and garlic; cook 15 seconds. Add chicken and stir-fry until starting to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a plate.

  • Add remaining teaspoon of vegetable oil, pepper and broccoli to same skillet; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add chicken back to skillet, pour in soy sauce and cook, stirring, until chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes more; toss with remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Sprinkle on cashews and serve. Yields about 1 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

  • We chopped the nuts so we could cut back on the total amount used but still sprinkle a lot on the dish.
