Your BEST easy recipe

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Chicken Stir Fry
(this would feed 4, or two with leftovers)

Marinate two diced chicken breasts anywhere from 1 hour to overnight in teriyaki sauce (add soy or hot sauce if you like).

The basics: Dice one onion, and two bulbs of garlic.

You can then add green pepper, pea pods, broccoli, carrots, bok choy, water chestnuts, etc - whatever you like in your stir fry. I add a little cilantro at the very end, keeps it tasting very fresh and clean.

Saute onions and garlic in a wok (or large frying pan) with a little oil - olive, sesame, or vegetable.

Add chicken - cook until outside is white.

Add remaining veggies.

To help speed things up, put a lid on the wok, add a little water, and turn down heat to help soften hard veggies.

Finish by adding 1 tsp of corn starch already mixed with water to give it that restaurant "glazed" look - it also thickens the sauce.

Serve over white rice, or stir in noodles - spaghetti or whatever - for lo mein.

I like a little soy sauce on my stir fry, or try this great hot sauce - Sriracha, a hot chilli sauce.

So this can be as simple as you want, or as complicated as you want. For one, or 8. Just chicken, onions and garlic (less then $10 total), or everything I mentioned and more.

ENJOY.

And you?
