Easy Chicken Stir Fry

Easy Chicken Stir Fry

Yes this is easy-peasy and at around 290 calories this is a good DIET meal that happens to deliver2½ portions of over5aday per serving. As can be seen the ingredients can be pretty much geared to what you have to hand although some would say the bean sprouts are de rigeur.
The time to prepare this dish of 30 minutes does not include the time to marinate the chicken. Do not stint on this - this is where the flavor comes from.
Counts as an Over5days recipe on the Pro52diet.
