Chicken Stir Fry

So on evenings like these ones when you don't feel like cooking and have no inspiration to make anything dishes like these are a lifesaver or rather an evening saver. I was roaming around in my kitchen not knowing what to cook yet craving for real food, no fast food, no pizza, no chinese takeout. 
I was looking through the cabinets when I realized I had this new stir-fry pan that I had never put to use so far. 
I had onions, bell peppers, garlic, spices and boneless skinless chicken (the only kind my husband really likes which is kind of weird for being a typical african man...). I decided to make a simple but tasty stir fry.

The pictures do not do justice to how appetizing it really looked but hopefully that gives you a little bit of a sense... and convinces you to make it one of these evenings when you just wanna relax and enjoy some simple, light, tasty food.

So here we go. I cut my chicken in cubes and boiled with a little bit of water until cooked through (about 10 minutes). I heated a little bit of oil, then added my pieces of chicken with some seasoning cube, ground black pepper and garlic paste. I let my chicken brown a little, taking in the flavor of the spices. I then minced onions, red/green/yellow bell peppers (I did all 3), and a habanero pepper, added them to my pan and kept stirring. That's it!!!

And since I had some of my homemade wheat bread, decided to serve the chicken stir fry with it along with a very simple salad, just romaine lettuce, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs and balsamic vinaigrette dressing which is really the only dressing that we buy (I usually make our own dressing).

My husband loved it!!! He said it was simple, healthy and very tasty and suggested that should be one of our main weekdays dinner meals. I agree!!

Hopefully you get inspired to make the same meal or modify it to your taste!
