I love Chinese and Thai food, but used to be too intimidated to make the recipes at home. Some of the recipes have a lot of ingredients or ingredients I am not familiar with. With this stir fry recipe I have found a way to make easy stir fry at home, and even with a Mexican twist!
One trick I have found is to use Mazola Corn Oil to begin your cooking. This oil has a high smoke point, so when you have to stir fry or cook on a higher heat your food will be safe. If you heat oils beyond the smoke point then your food will lose it’s flavor and nutritional value. Boo!
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose cooking oil that is a heart-healthy* choice for your family. Variety of uses include baking, grilling, sauteing, stir frying or mixing up a marinade or dressing.
Plus, with September being National Cholesterol Awareness month we can all go a little easier on our bodies by making a substitution of Mazola Corn Oil instead of butter!
This stir fry is so fresh, light and better for you than restaurant food! With the fresh peppers (and any other veg you want to add) and cauliflower rice you really get a well balanced meal that tastes so great!
Once you have your Mazola Corn Oil heated you can toss in your chicken until cooked through. Then you add your veggies, stock and seasoning. While all that is cooking nicely, prepare your rice, and it will all be ready to devour! Simple ingredients are sure to make this a hit for the whole family, and it really couldn’t be easier to make!

So, next time you are too intimidated to make your favorite restaurant dish, just remember you can always adapt it to be perfect for your family’s preferences! Light, fresh and simple dishes do not compromise flavor.
