My parents are all about cooking and creating these days. They just “throw some meat in the smoker” or “toss some seasonings together” and it’s almost always amazing. (There was that one time with the orange juice and the ham…but we won’t talk about that)…but this spicy chicken stir fry I will request the next time I visit.
So for Father’s Day, I got some grilling accessories and some new seasonings I kept hearing about called Penzeys Spices. They are the bees knees apparently. Of course, I haven’t tried them, but everybody I know raves about them. I grabbed them a BBQ 3001 as the description sounded yummy and apparently they got a Barbecue of the Americas container as a freebie.
I then received various text messages and pictures of all of the yummy things they were making with them, like steamed veggies and spicy chicken stir fry.
When they sent me this picture, I had to know more. And then felt like other people might want to know, too.
This is all of the seasoning they put into their spicy stir fry, minus the fresh jalapeño. Have I mentioned they like their seasonings?
When I originally asked for the recipe, they said they just “threw some stuff in.” When forced however, they gave some loose measurements. So, you might need to adjust according to your desired flavors.
First they cut up chicken breasts and fresh jalapeños from the garden. Then they seasoned the meat and jalapeños with the BBQ 3001 and the Barbecue of the Americas seasoning. Then they sautéed until the chicken is cooked. Then add cut up broccoli, carrots and green peppers and lightly cook. Then they added some teriyaki, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger dressing, and orange ginger sauce (all sauces from Aldi except the Teriyaki…no, not sponsored). Let it all steam for a few minutes then thicken with corn starch. And serve over rice. Or, if you’d prefer to not have the rice, zoodles or spaghetti squash make great replacements. Check out how to cook spaghetti squash so you are ready!
When pressed, this was the approximate amounts for the sauces: 1T teriyaki, 1T asian ginger dressing, 1t hoisin sauce, 1t soy sauce, 1t orange ginger sauce.
Of course, they aren’t quite trained up yet and didn’t send me a nice plated picture, so you’ll have to use your imagination. But, do let them know in the comments if you think you will try this out and how you might modify it or keep it the same!
