Light & Filling Stir -Fry

Today I am going to be sharing my healthy version of Japanese food. I have been craving it lately and have come so close to picking up my favorite teriyaki chicken on the way home from work. But then I think to myself is it really worth it and I think about how hard I have worked to get where I am right now and how far I still want to go. So I keep on driving. So last night I got to thinking, (I know sometimes that is dangerous for me ha) why not make a healthy version. So I stopped by the grocery store and picked up all the goods.
What you will need
rotisserie chicken
veggie quinoa
low sodium, sugar free stir fry mix
chili paste (I am a little ridiculous I think I could eat this stuff out if the jar, gross I know ha)

Start by chopping up all your veggies

Then begin cooking your quinoa (it cooks just like rice) and your veggies

While they are cooking shred off all the white meat on the chicken.

Once the veggies are tender add your chicken, seasoning,chili paste and water. (I also added low sodium soy sauce).
Then mix.

Once the quinoa is fully cooked add to main dish. Let cook on high for about 5 minutes while stirring and then turn down to medium and let cook until everything is mixed well with the seasonings,

Then get your chopsticks out and enjoy your homemade healthy Japanese dish in the privacy of your own home. :)

It was so tasty and filling!

Make sure you check out tomorrow for yet another healthy Mexican dish!!

    1. I know me TOO! I will be making this a lot I think:) Thanks for stopping my blog!

      Stay healthy & happy,

  2. Love Stir-fry!!! And rotisserie chicken... what a great idea to combine them both, rather than having to cook raw chicken!!

    1. Yes anytime I cook with chicken I always get a rotisserie chicken because they are around the same price and so much easier & quicker than cooking the chicken. Not to mention it is SO tasty!! xo

      Stay healthy & Happy,
