My VERY OWN RECIPE!!! :) Avocado-Chicken Stir Fry

When DH and I ate at a local Chinese restaurant recently, I decided to find the weirdest thing on the menu and try it. I wound up with a chicken stir-fry dish that had avocado in it. It was sooo good! I created my own stir fry recipe from the bottom up inspired by that dish. I submitted the recipe to Allrecipes.com, so hopefully you can see it there soon!

Make sure your avocado isn't super ripe or it will turn to mush in the cooking process.

Avocado-Chicken Stir Fry

INGREDIENTS
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 large, ripe but firm avocados cut into large chunks
2 cups snow peas
2 cups cremini mushrooms, destemmed and sliced thinly
4 bunches green onions, cut into 1 inch sections

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

Sauce
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 clove of garlic, minced

DIRECTIONS
1. Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Coat the bottom of a wok with vegetable oil. Heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering.

3. Stir-fry chicken until cooked through. Remove and set aside. Add snow peas and cook for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and bell pepper.  Cook until mushrooms are done and snow peas are crisp-tender.

4. Pour off excess oil and liquid. Return chicken to wok. Add sauce, green onions, and avocado chunks. Cook 2-3 minutes until sauce thickens, stirring gently. Serve over rice.
Pin It!
