But today I am going to share with you one of my favorite easy dishes we love to have for dinner, Velveted Chicken & Veggie Stir Fry!
Velveting the chicken is a technique used often in asian cooking to tenderize chicken and it really bumps this stir fry to the next level!!
You just mix your chicken with some cornstarch and the egg whites and let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes, then you can get with the stir frying!
Stir fries are already such a lean flavorful meal but velveting the chicken with these egg whites just make it even more delicious!
I stir fry my chicken up with a bag of frozen asian style chicken and dinner is done in minutes!
The egg whites keep this chicken sooo tender and I just love it! I will never go back to not velveting my chicken!!
