Tamari Chicken

This recipe is extremely flexible and can be adjusted to feed as many (or as few) as you want!

Basic ingredients:
Boneless chicken breasts (1 per person)
Sweet peppers (red & yellow are our faves)
Green onion/scallion (optional)
Tamari sauce (if you're not familiar, it's a brand of soy sauce. IMO it's better than other kinds, and the low sodium version is excellent).
Olive oil

Dice up sweet peppers and green onion (if using onion). Rinse chicken and cut into small, bite-sized pieces; set aside.

Pour a small amount of oil in the bottom of a wok or stir-fry pan (regular frying pan can be used, but you'll get much better results w/the other pans), enough to cover the bottom. Turn heat on high. When oil is warm (I usually flick a few drops of water in the pan and see if it sizzles), add the peppers & onions. Add a few shakes (to taste) of Tamari sauce- basically enough to cover the veggies. Stir it around and continually stir the veggies until they are soft and opaque (I never time it- sorry!- probably a couple of minutes, tops). You don't want them to get black.

Remove the veggies from pan to a serving bowl. Add chicken to wok and a few more shakes of Tamari. As with the veggies, continually stir and move around until they are cooked through (again, 3 or 4 minutes, tops). Add the veggies back to the pan and warm them up a bit. That's it!

I usually serve this w/basmati or wild rice, and both DH & DS like it. I made it last night, in fact, after not having it for quite a while, and the smell of it cooking lured DH in from outside LOL.
