This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

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
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes (including 15 minutes marinating time)
  • 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
  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.
  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.
