What's for dinner (I know, I'm super early)

Posted by   + Show Post

I think we are going to have this stir fry except with chicken since I'm cooking for my neighbor too:

Glazed Seitan Stir-Fry

Glazed Seitan Stir-Fry

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Have all ingredients chopped and ready, and keep them in constant motion over high heat while cooking so they get crisp on the outside and stay tender inside.
Glazed Seitan
  • 3 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 12-oz. pkg. seitan, shredded
Stir-Fry
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch strips (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 Tbs. minced ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 Tbs.)
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. arrowroot powder

1. To make Glazed Seitan: Combine syrup, juice, and soy sauce in small bowl.

2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add seitan, and stir-fry 4 minutes, or until golden. Add maple syrup mixture, and simmer 3 minutes, or until seitan is coated with glaze. Transfer to bowl. Wipe out skillet.

3. To make Stir-Fry: Toast cashews in dry skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Transfer to bowl. Heat 1 Tbs. sesame oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and edamame, and stir-fry 2 minutes.

4. Move vegetables to sides of skillet, and pour remaining 1 tsp. oil in center. Add ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in 2 Tbs. water, Glazed Seitan, and cashews. Cover, and cook 2 minutes, or until pepper is tender.

5. Combine orange juice and arrowroot powder. Stir into vegetable mixture. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat, and serve.

Quoting LilliesValley:

Cut up chicken and cover with water boil for about an hour. Pull out chicken and reserve liquid, allow chicken to cool and then pull chicken meat off the bone and discard bone.

In s stock pot put 4-5 cups of the reserved water into the stock pot with 2 tablespoons of chicken base or 2-3 boullian cubes. 2 tablespoons of garlic powder, 1&1/2 onions medium diced, (if you want celery cut up 2 stalks and add) splash of sherry, 1 teaspoon of black pepper, simmer for 10-15 minutes until onions are translucent.

Add noodles (we use egg noodles about half a bag). Cook noodles in stock pot with onions and other liquid. In a small frying or sauce pan melt 1 stick of butter add 3 tablespoons of flour, mixing frequently for aprox 5 minutes, it will start to smell like a short bread cookie. Start adding this to the stock pot liquid, slowly until it is as thick as you would like. If it gets too thick add some reserve liquid that you boiled the chicken in. Add chicken and serve hot.

You can also add frozen veggies or fresh veggies into it. And dh said some smoked gouda melted into it is really good. You can also use a rotisserie chicken and use just water and chicken base or some swansons chicken broth. Tell me how it turns out!
