Greek Chicken Stir-Fry
Stir-fry with a twist! These ingredients add spark and great flavor to a typical chicken stir-fry. Serve over steamed rice, prepared instant couscous, or hot cooked noodles.
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add chicken and garlic and stir-fry until chicken is cooked, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken and garlic to plate with slotted spoon and set aside.
Add frozen vegetables to skillet and stir-fry for 5 to 7 minutes until hot and crisp-tender. Add chicken to skillet and sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir-fry for 1 minute longer.
Sprinkle with feta cheese, remove pan from heat, cover, and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes longer to melt cheese. Serve immediately.
Seasonings and ingredients that add a Greek flavor include feta cheese, oregano, olives, spinach, filo dough, pita bread, rice, fresh seafood, grape leaves, lamb, and yogurt. The food is fairly spicy, with some unusual food combinations that include spinach and raisins, and beef and olives.
