Keepin’ it simple… Pt.2: “Chicken/Veggie Stir Fry”

A while back I posted the first “Keepin’ it simple…” post, and think this over time might be a reoccurring topic.

With these posts I want to show that you can eat good, tasty, healthy food made with low effort…so they should mainly be seen as inspiration rather than strict recipes.
Often they use leftovers from food made in other posts and stuff commonly available at home, so they’re easy on the wallet too…

Chicken/Veggie Stir Fry

Prep time10 minutes
Cook time15 minutes
Total time25 minutes
Compliance Paleo, Primal, Whole30
Meal type Lunch, Main Dish
Main ingredient Chicken/Poultry
Just a simple idea to a quick meal...

What you need:

  • diced chicken (perfect use for leftovers!)
  • diced vegetables of choice (e.g. asparagus, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, onions, garlic etc)
  • 1 lemon
  • spices of choice


  • some grated parmesan cheese

What to do:

1If you use raw chicken, fry it first and put aside (leftovers just needs to be re-heated).
2Then start frying the vegetables that that requires the longest cooking time until preferred texture is achieved, and add the others along the way so they’re all done at about the same time.
3Add the chicken when the vegetables are almost done, and then spices, zest etc. to taste.
4Finnish off by removing the pan from the heat and if, you wish, grate some parmesan cheese over.
5Gently stir/toss a few times and let the cheese partially melt before serving if you added that.


This recipe is not exact in any kind of way, it is rather meant as inspiration.

For Whole30 compliance, absolutely no cheese....


Does not need to be harder than that.
