My Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

I made this tonight and it came out pretty well. I have to say, if you have small children, take it easy on the Red Pepper Flakes, or serve it on the side. But it is good, filling and nutritious! And easy to make, of course. Serves 6.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 onion, chopped
Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
1 tbsp ginger powder
1 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water with 2 tbsp conrstarch dissolved into it
3 cups broccoli, chopped
3 cups carrots, chopped

In a deep frying pan or wok, heat up the vegetable and sesame oil together, and throw in your garlic and onion. Fry that up for a minute or two, and add your chicken. At this point, I like to add my spices. Add the red pepper flakes, ginger powder, parsley, salt and allspice. Cook till chicken is an opaque white and make sure to mix the spices well into everything. Add the broccoli and carrots, and pour in your soy sauce. Stir fry till everything is incorporated. Cover, set heat on medium and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Serve over rice. It's fast, delicious and only 5 points per serving! Enjoy it now!
