    Stir-Fried Spicy Chicken Tenders

    A bag of frozen peppers and onions can be a quick start to a stir-fry; here, it's combined with almost fat-free chicken tenders for a speedy dinner. Serve this dish with warm polenta rounds or brown rice.

    Ingredients

    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders, cut into 2-inch pieces (see Variation)
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 16-ounce package frozen bell pepper and onion mix

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Combine sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne in a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes or overnight.
    Step 2
    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pepper-and-onion mix and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the spice-rubbed chicken and cook, stirring, until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot. Variation: Make Stir-Fried Spicy Beef by using 1 pound of stir-fry beef or thinly sliced top round steak instead of chicken in this dish.
