I’m not sure I should call this Bacon, Chicken and Snow-Peas Stir-Fry a ‘stir-fry’ because honestly, there’s not a lot of Asian ingredients in there. Errr, ok, there’s only one: soy sauce. And a single tablespoon.

But, wait! Are stir-fries necessarily Asian? I mean, I’ve always seen stir-fry recipes that seemed Asian inspired but I’m suddenly overwhelmed by doubt. Let’s check with my best friend, named Google.

Ok, so I checked and here’s what it told me. Stir-fry is CHINESE. And it’s actually a cooking method. So basically, it means you can add whatever healthy ingredient you want! Right? So I decided to make a healthy Bacon, Chicken & Snow Peas Stir-Fry, to get a good dose of veggies into my diet.

Asian or not, this Bacon Chicken and Snow Peas Stir-Fry is a quick and easy one-skillet dinner you can have on your table in 30 minutes sharp. My favorite kind of meals! And the chicken/bacon combo paired with the crunchy snow peas? So delicious and full of proteins and vitamins!

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts about 7 oz each, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari for GF, coconut aminos for paleo
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 4 oz bacon chopped into bits
  • 10 oz sugar snap peas or snow peas
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, coat chicken cubes with 1 tbsp cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine, chicken stock, soy sauce and 1 tbsp cornstarch. Set aside
  3. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet (or a wok if you have one!) on high heat. Brown bacon for 30 seconds to 1 minute (If you don't like your bacon crispy, skip this step and add bacon with the chicken). 

  4. Add chicken to the skillet and stir-fry until chicken is almost cooked through (timing will depend on the bites' size but you need to make sure the chicken is still slightly pink). Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  5. Drizzle some additional olive oil into the pan, if needed (it wasn't necessary for me), add snow peas and stir-fry for about 3 minutes or until cooked through but still crispy.

  6. Bring chicken and bacon back to the skillet and pour chicken stock mixture in. Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 minute or until the sauce has reduced by half and has thickened. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

  1. I’m surprised no ones commented! I finally made this tonight. I should have cooked the bacon at least maybe 5 minutes as it was so underdone my chicken ended up overdone. I might add carrots and cabbage to it next time. I also had to add salt to mine. It was really delicious though and I will be making it again!
