Five Ingredients or Less – Stir Fry ‘O Rama!

The gauntlet has been thrown down. Fitness Blog World has challenged us to come up with a clean and healthy recipe with 5 ingredients or less.

I added in another modifier – EASY.

Yup, I like to make my recipes fast and easy. The less time spent in the kitchen means the less likely I am going to find myself shoving a spoon into my husband’s peanut butter for ‘quality control‘ purposes.

Sometimes you have to test that darned peanut butter 5 or 6 times just to be sure.

I like to be sure.

Chicken Stir Fry ‘O Rama

Easiest recipe on the planet. Chicken and vegetables with a little ‘o rama thrown in for good measure.

First gather your ingredients.

Technically more than FIVE ingredients unless you call all the spices 'seasoning'. Let's do that, shall we?

I actually bake 5 or 6 chicken breasts ahead of time in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes so they are ready to be eaten at any given moment.

Grab whatever veggies you have and you’re nearly finished.

Today I used:

  • 125 grams chicken breast (souvlaki flavored)
  • 100 grams green beans
  • 100 grams red pepper
  • 140 grams mushrooms
  • Seasoning

Then get your chop on.

I can handle this kind of chopping, quick and easy. WIN!

Throw it all into a wok with a cup of water on medium heat.

Now time for the ‘o rama.

Add more spices than you would think reasonable. I abused the Club House parmesan flavored seasoning and used more Mrs. Dash than a normal person would ever think about adding.

The answer is 'Yes, but just barely'. The question - 'Do you have any taste buds left?'

Cook until veggies are tender and and the water is gone.

For even more o’rama, burn it just a wee bit.

Just a wee bit crispy!

I love it, but if you’re not used to ‘o rama-ing your stir fry, I suggest starting out slow with the seasoning. Like my mom always said, ‘Its easy to add more!‘ Moms are smart.

  1. I make stir fry almost every night!. It never gets old! But I have never seen parmesan seasoning before – awesome!!!

  2. you only QC’d the PB five or six times…sheesh, I probably have to have a go at it for at least 20 minutes before I can make a reasonable conclusion! 😉

  3. That looks so good. I love foods with lots of color. I’m not a fan of mushrooms though…looks good minus the mushrooms 😉

  4. I have also learned to like those little fungi!
    as for the PB, well I just avoid stocking it in the cupboard and when the man’s here and he wants his almond butter, I run 😉

  5. That food looks great! Going to definitely try this out. I love mushrooms!
