This colorful stir-fry combines green bell pepper, orange carrots and red onion along with spice-coated chicken for a delicious result. The cooking happens quickly, so it's a good idea to measure out and prepare all the ingredients in the recipe before you fire up the wok. Enjoy the smoky aromas that emanate from the pan and the combination of spices that titillate the taste buds.

"This dish was very good. We cut down on the chili spice only because my two little ones wont eat spicy. So I used a few pepper flakes and cooked with some unopened dried chili peppers. I also used a little bit less mint and used the...

Really good....

Just adding picture since the one I posted below did not show up.
Served with Red Quinoa and Eatingwell's Garlic Yogurt Dressing on the Salad...
First time to cook Indian food and tasted like I've been doing this for years...

I really like this dish and will definitely make it again. I eat Indian food out quite often, but never made it at home. It really was easy and the spices were just right. I found red bell pepper, so used that instead of green.

Easy to make, pretty with the different colors, very tasty and not too heavy on the spices
With Red Quinoa and Eatinwell's Garlic-Yogurt Dressing.
Definitely will make again

This didn't even need the garlic…and I'm a garlic fanatic…I left out the garlic, added a few more veggies (broccoli, snow peas, bok choy, water chestnuts, mushrooms) and a few dashes of sesame oil. Delicious!!

Simple and tasty

I also decreased the oil by 1 tablespoon. Two was definitely enough. I'm a vegetarian and substituted chicken for Quorn chicken pieces but this could also work well with tofu, seitan, tempeh or any other protein meat substitute. Loved the taste and the heat from the chiles. I also added about half a cup water to the chicken and veggies and let it cook down. Served over basmati rice.

Great dish

So i didin't have fennel or chilli's, and I totally forgot to add the lime juice and mint at the end or add ground cayenne but this dish was yummy anyway! It makes you feel good because it's healthy and doesn't make you feel heavy or too full after eating. I made this with the spiced rice and corn pilaf which is delish! I mixed the two and the flavors soort of fought for dominance but it was still a great dish! I will for sure make this dish again!

Healthy, easy prep
