Chicken & Vegetables Stir Fry

Growing up I had this dish a lot. My mom would make this often . She was a good cook . And was an amazing mother . She was like my best friend , of course it was only the two of us always after my parents divorced when I was 11 . My mom always offered to teach me how to cook but I always refused that idea . I don’t know how many times I regret it now .

Anyway back to stir fry , we also call this Cap Chay . Basically you can use any kind of protein you have , pork , chicken or shrimp . I never use beef for this kind though . I’ve also done scallops , pairing it with chicken , was awesome . The veggies , just anything you have . This time I only had cabbage , carrots and broccoli . Sometimes I add snap peas , baby corn , edamame , or whatever , really .

I’d blanch my veggies that way I don’t undercook or overcook them , esp when I use chicken breast , it cooks relatively quick . I don’t like my veggies mushy , you have option to use frozen veggies but you might end up with mushy veggies . I like mine with a little bit of crunch still .
