Chicken Stir Fry

I know. Easter is a few days away. So why not traditional Easter recipes? Sorry folks. Helen is still doing Atkins, and while she shared a potluck recipe since SCL was commenting about potlucks, her heart isn't in sharing carbs with you just yet. She hopes you enjoy the stir fry chicken.

Chicken Stir Fry
You will need:
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch
about 3 tablespoons of oil
1 teaspoon of chopped ginger
1 teaspoon of chopped garlic
pea pods
water chestnuts
baby corn
1/2 cup of stir fry sauce (purchased, not homemade)

Cut 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts into tin slices and stir in 1 egg white and 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch. Mix well.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add 1 teaspoon of chopped ginger and 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic.
Then add the chicken. Stir for 30 seconds and add 1/3 cup of pea pods, 1/4 cup of water chestnuts, and 1/2 cup of baby corn. Stir fry until the chicken is no longer pink. Then add stir fry sauce. Stir fry for about one minute.

P.S. If you were hoping for a ham recipe, Helen's only secret is baking it in a can of ginger ale (remember to pour it out of the can), and baste with the juices every so often. This year, Sherri at Everything In Moderation. has inspired Helen with her crock pot recipe to try the ginger ale in a crock pot instead of basting it in an oven. Let's wish her luck, and check out Sherri's blog as well. Let her know Helen sent you in her comment section. Then Helen can possibly win cool prizes. Hey, if you comment, it could be you winning instead. You never know unless you try.
