Chicken, Mushroom, & Veggie Stir-fry (200 calories)

Dinner for our first 5:2 week was a pretty simple stir-fry ~

Chicken, Mushroom, Veggie Stir-fry (200 calories)

Here's a quick recipe ~

1) In a small bowl or cup, stir together 1 Tbsp. soy sauce, 1 Tbsp. oyster sauce, 1 Tbsp. brown sugar, and 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic. Set aside.

2) Heat a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add an 8 oz. can of bamboo shoots, 8 oz. can of water chestnuts, and 1 cup cut green beans and toss together. Cover the pan and let the veggies steam for a few minutes.

3) Uncover, add 8 oz. chicken (cut into bite-sized pieces), and cook until the outside has browned, stirring frequently. Add 8oz. fresh mushrooms and the sauce and stir-fry until chicken has cooked all the way through.

This ended up being very tasty & filling. I'd like to tweak the sauce a little next time, but I've got several other stir-fry sauces I want to try, so it may be a while! I had planned on the kids splitting the other third (with rice), but like most dinners they barely touched it, even though they can pack away restaurant Chinese! So I packed up the leftovers and had them for lunch later ~ no complaints!
