As long as I can remember, Chicken and Seafood Vegetable Stir Fry was always a favorite in our home. My dad fell in love with Asian cuisine after moving to the United States. We started our new lives living in a small town in Ohio. This town had a nice, cozy sit-down Chinese restaurant in their very small, historic down-town. Despite having energetic children, he would take us out every week to eat there. We got to know everybody in that restaurant, including the owner and his family. We also got to know their menu very well!
My dad’s creativity was always on full gear. He would try to recreate his favorite dishes from the restaurant. Over the years, it has evolved to contain my dad’s most favorite ingredients: chicken, scallops and shrimps. My dad also likes to add beef to his stir fry too.
The stir fry dishes were always appealing to us, because you can get delicious food, fast! My dad try’s to use as many vegetables as possible in his stir fry. The wonderful thing about this dish is, you can add the vegetables YOU like. We use zucchini, bak choy, peppers, onions, carrots, broccoli, green beans, mushrooms and a bit of garlic. I remember eating this as a kid and actually enjoying the vegetables , like it was sprinkles on a cupcake. We hope you enjoy your veggies as much as we do with this tasty stir fry!
