Cooking with a wok is great, and can be very healthy. As the name indicates, this dish is a stir-fry, but in cooking method only — it’s quick and healthy, and its delicious ingredients are distinctly Mediterranean (for the most part). Try this dish tonight!
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 large), thinly sliced crosswise
1 (smallish) red onion, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced or very finely grated
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp sambal ulek
1 Tbsp lemon juice
12 Kalamata olives, pitted and quartered lengthwise
1 1/2 oz (about 1/4 cup) sun-dried tomatoes (I prefer those that are not packed on oil or water; just dry, but soak in boiling water 10 minutes, then drain), cut into very thin strips
1 Tbsp chopped parsley, plus some coarsely chopped for garnish
Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in wok over medium-high heat.
Add chicken and stir fry 5 minutes. Remove from wok.
Add the other 1 Tbsp olive oil. Heat and add onions. Stir fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add back chicken. Add vinegar, sambal ulek and lemon juice. Toss well.
Stir in olives, sun-dried tomatoes. Season with additional salt and ground black pepper, if desired. Serve over cous cous and garnish with parsley.
Mmm all my favorite flavors in one dish 🙂
Yes, I agree. The thing about Mediterranean cooking for me (that I keep needing to remind myself of) is the simple, fresh and natural elegance of the ingredients, which come together so well.
Love the colors.
Thanks. It just seemed to come together in the last few photo shots — still trying to figure out if I’m satisfied.
I’ve been looking for something I can do with chicken I have in my freezer…this looks like a winner!
Yup, same with me, have a lot of chicken in the freezer that I’m trying to get creative with.
im hungry now:)
Thanks. Hope you try it!
Looks absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks! Easy to prepare, and I think it tastes great, as well.
