Garlic Chicken Stir-fry

This recipe from my mom was a favorite of mine growing up, and I continue to make it often today. I love that it uses ingredients that I always have on hand (with the occasional exception of the green onions). It's easy to make, inexpensive, and tasty, with a little kick to it.

Garlic Chicken Stir-fry

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed coriander seeds
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
8 green onions
3 Tbsp olive oil

Slice the green onions into half-inch slices.

Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes and place in a medium-sized bowl.

Add the garlic to the chicken.

Top with green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, black pepper, coriander, sugar, and red pepper.

Stir ingredients until well-blended. Cover and place in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the chicken mixture.

Cook and stir until chicken is cooked through, about 5-8 minutes.

Serve over rice.
