Day 81, Sesame Ginger Chicken

I like making stir frys, they're easy and you're able to stretch the budget with cut up meat.

Sesame Ginger Chicken

1 pound chicken, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 cups broccoli
1/2 bottle sesame ginger marinade
1 cup brown rice, dry
2 cups water

Place chicken in a resealable bag; pour marinade over chicken. Let set in fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.
In a small pot, bring water to a boil, add rice. Cook as directed on package.
In a large frying pan, cook chicken until browned and no longer pink inside. Steam broccoli until crisp tender; add to chicken mixture and stir to coat.
Serve over cooked rice.

Serves 4-6

I like marinade, it gives a lot of flavor throughout the meat. You can use the cooked marinade, but be sure to throw out any marinade that was used to flavor the chicken. I don't use oil when using marinade because there is usually enough marinade in the pan to boil the meat.

Flavor Rating: Ok, I wasn't really thrilled by this particular flavor, but it was still edible.

Ease of Preparation: Easy, you can start the marinading process before you go to work.
