Cuban Chicken Stir Fry with Snow Peas, Spinach, Black Beans and Rice Noodles

    Stir fry recipes are perfect for a quick weeknight meal. This recipe may not seem like a quick cook, but once you have the seasoning made, the whole thing comes together really fast! Makes: 4

    Step ONE Slice the chicken on an angle into flat wide pieces. Place it in a bowl with the juice of 2 limes and 3 tbsp of Cuban Stirfry Seasoning, DELICIOUSDISH. Let it marinate while you get the rest of the recipe together.

    Step TWO
    In a large fry pan, I like cast iron, heat 2 tbsp of the oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and garlic, cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the snow peas, cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove this mixture to a serving dish.

    Step THREE Add the last bit of oil and the chicken and all its marinade into the pan and the 1 tbsp of Cuban Stirfry Seasoning, DELICIOUSDISH. Separate the chicken pieces and stir fry for about 4-5 minutes or until mostly cooked.

    Step FOUR Add the 3/4 cup water, turn the heat to high and let the water boil and thicken. It will take about 5 minutes. Add the veggies back to the pan, the spinach and the black beans. Let the spinach wilt while stirring.

    Step FIVE Once the sauce has thickened, empty the pot on top of the rice noodles.

    Step SIX Serve with any of the toppings tossed through!
