Celery and potatoes, chicken stir fry

Today I decided to cook something quick but I wanted it to have celery in it. Also I quite early decided that orange and celery should make a pretty good combo and then I added potatoes and chicken to make for a more substantial dinner. Turned out pretty great!

 

Celery and potatoes, chicken stir fry

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2-3 chicken cutlets
  • 1 celery
  • 3-4 medium potatoes
  • 1 orange
  • salt
  • pepper
  • EVOO

Directions

  1. First I started out by roasting a bit of diced pancetta in some olive oil, then I added the celery stalks diced up and the potatoes also diced. I sprinkled the vegetables with the juice and the zest of 1 orange and seasoned with salt and pepper. I covered the pan to help the potatoes and the celery to cook down and let cook for 15-20 minutes. When the potatoes where soft, I added the chicken cutlets cut into stripes and continued cooking uncovered until the chicken was throughly cooked (about another 5 minutes). In the final minutes the juices should evaporate so you can get some caramelization on the veggies.
  2. A quick, light and bright stir fry great for any season.

    Yes, the orange flavor comes through. This time it was just a hint as I only had a small orange a bigger orange gives the whole thing a more distinctive flavor.
