With the craziness of the holiday season and the flu that does not want to quit our nest, I barely have the time to cook. If ever I needed an easy recipe, this was the week! Stir Fry is my savior. I mix in meat, vegetables and my favourite Blue Dragon stir fry sauce. I have a delicious easy recipe ready in less than 30 minutes. Of course, I usually have meat in the freezer and frozen or fresh vegetables. You cannot make dinner if you don’t have basic ingredients, can you? So make sure to have always those in hand along with Blue Dragon sauces.
For today’s stir fry I will be using the Wasabi Plum Stir Fry sauce. I have never used it before because I thought it would be too spicy. Turns out, I was wrong! It is a mix of sweet plum, ginger, soy sauce and wasabi. You cannot go wrong with this mix. Besides my kids love the blend of sweet and sour.
Since it is the holiday season, I decided to serve it in a french fry dish. I never make french fries at home so I never got the chance to use this dish. It was a gift from a co-worker. I thought it added a nice touch to my chicken stir fry recipe. Besides my daughter LOVES eating in nice dishes. Guess I am raising a princess, sigh.

- Add the onions and let it cook until onion is tender
- Add chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes
- Add the red pepper and let it stir fry for an extra minute
- Pour the sauce and simmer for 1 minute
- You can serve with rice or noodles.
- I served in this french fry dish.
You would think that the wasabi would be too spicy for the kids but it is not. I loved the mix of the plums and wasabi. It added so much flavor to the chicken. As much as I love chicken because it is a leaner cut of meat, it is hard to season. Blue Dragon Stir Fry sauces fixes that and enhances the flavor. Since it was such a hit, I’ll definitely serve it again!
