Updated August 12, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4
    pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2
    cups water
  • 1
    tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 1
    bag (1 pound) frozen broccoli, red peppers, onions and mushrooms, thawed
  • 2
    cups uncooked instant rice
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink in center.
  • 2
    Add water and margarine; heat to boiling. Stir in vegetables, rice, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese; remove from heat. Cover and let stand about 5 minutes or until water is absorbed.

  • Purchase precut chicken for stir-fry from the meat department of your supermarket and save time.
  • Boost flavor when you stir in 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules with the water, and omit salt. Add 1 teaspoon onion powder if you like.
