Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry

Home » COOK » Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry

I made this yummy Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry a few days ago for our dinner. I kept it low in calories by only using a few sprays of a one-cal oil spray instead of oil, and using water to help steam the vegetables. I always watch our carb intake with meals, and this too helps with keeping calories low. I also bulk stir fry dishes out with vegetables.

The recipe that I’ve given makes enough for 3 to 4 servings – depending on how much you eat! The total calories for the whole dish is around 700 calories (not including rice or noodles) if you want to add a carb to your dish, I try to keep it to around 40g, rather than what the packet usually recommends as a serving (75g). Check packet for calorie count.

Of course, if you’re not counting calories, disregard info and enjoy this colourful and tasty chicken and vegetable stir fry!

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe so I hope you enjoy!
