Heat up a little oil in a skillet (a wok is great, but any skillet will do), throw in some protein and vegetables, and stir. This version uses chicken as a base, but strips of beef, pork, or tofu will work just as well. Stir-fry vegetable mixes are available at most grocery stores, but there are a number of fresh or frozen vegetables that will work perfectly here—broccoli, snow peas, bell peppers, and baby corn especially. Experiment and see! This easy recipe is a great place to start.
