Quick and Easy (QED) Guest Blogger - April - Chicken and Almond Stir Fry
Savory for quite a while and as a result,
we got to know each other. She and
I are now working on another
enterprise with a few other bloggers.
You will have to wait and see what we
have up our communal sleeve.
If you have a "quick and easy" recipe, you would like to
share with us, please let me know. Now, let's see what April
brings to the table.
"This dish is really quick and easy to make, and you probably
already have most of the ingredients on hand. You can buy
almonds already toasted, but if you can’t find them in your
local store, simply heat some flaked almonds over medium
heat in a non-stick pan and keep them moving using a heat
safe spatula until they are all lightly toasted. (Don’t look away
even for a second or they will burn!) Remove from the pan as soon
as they are toasted."
Using brown rice makes this recipe even healthier, as does choosing
a low sodium soy sauce. One piece of advice, be sure you make
lots of this - everyone I serve it to wants seconds!

the onion. Stir fry for two to three minutes until it begins to
soften. Add the red peppers and green beans or asparagus,
continuing to stir fry until they become tender-crisp
(about 2 to 3 minutes). Stir in the rice, cooked chicken
and soy sauce and stir fry just until heated through.

next week and I am looking forward to sharing it with you.
If you choose to make this, please share a photo and a link
to your recipe on your blog, if you have shared it. It
would be fun to have a group of us comparing the look
and of our dishes.
