1/2 Cup Eggplant, cubed
1/2 Cup Yellow pepper, diced
1/2 Cup Celery, cubed
1 Oz Apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp Horseradish
1/2 Cup Oyster mushrooms
1 Bunch Vietnamese basil
7 Oz Chicken, cubed


step #1

Place your non-stick pan over medium heat. Add your eggplant and let it cook for a minute.

step #2

Once the eggplant has started cooking, add your yellow peppers, celery, sea salt, pepper, and pour your apple cider vinegar over everything.

step #3

Let your dish simmer for another minute, then add the horseradish and mix it in with your stir fry.

step #4

Once your vegetables are fairly soft, add your oyster mushrooms and toss your stir fry. If you prefer softer vegetables in a healthy chicken stir fry, add a tablespoon or two of water as your vegetables finish cooking.

step #5

After all your vegetables have cooked, mix in half your basil leaves and set everything aside on a plate so you can start your chicken!

step #6

Returning to your hot, non-stick pan, add your chicken and season it with sea salt and pepper to taste.

step #7

Sear your chicken.

step #8

Once your chicken is seared, add 1 oz of water to deglaze the pan, getting all the leftover bits of chicken and vegetables from your stir fry off the bottom of the pan.

step #9

Add the rest of your basil to the pan, mixing it in with your chicken. Continue cooking until your chicken is ready and the water has evaporated.

step #10

Once your chicken is cooked, it is ready to be added to your "garden!"

step #11

Ready to serve!
