Chicken Stir-fry Recipe and $50 GIVEAWAY: Eating Well with Door to Door Organics #JoyDelivered {ends 3/18}

*Disclosure: I received store credit from Door to Door Organics in exchange for this post. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I first tried out Door to Door Organics earlier in the year. I'm a self-proclaimed foodie, but I'm also pretty busy - I work full-time and run two blogs, this one and this one, and I also write Best of Detroit lists for CBS Detroit - and sometimes it's hard to find time to get to the grocery store. I also tend to eat way too many sweets not eat healthily some of the time.

When I got my first Door to Door Organics box, I was pretty excited about it - at that time, I had ordered the "small" box, which was actually HUGE, and it had a ton of (all organic) fruits and veggies in it. Not only was I able to skip the store that week, I didn't even have to leave my apartment to get local food that was also healthy and a good choice for me to eat.

If you haven't heard of Door to Door Organics, they're an awesome service that's also an online grocer. They provide natural, organic, and local products, and their website pretty much has everything ... and when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING. You can choose to do a weekly or biweekly "box," of either fruits, veggies, or both, but you can also add foods and drinks from their online Shop Page, which is what I did to create this recipe that I'm about to share with you.

This time around, I opted for a "bitty" box, and I also ordered some things from the Shop. I couldn't resist throwing a Zingerman's blondie brownie into my order, because it was reasonably priced and definitely easier than driving to Ann Arbor to buy one!

For my chicken stir-fry recipe, all of the ingredients were ordered from Door to Door Organics. I literally received the box on Friday, and then made the recipe a few days later for dinner. This continues to be my favorite meal that I have cooked for myself as of yet.

This recipe is super easy to make. I ended up with two large servings - looking back upon it, I could have made three servings out of it. Grab yourself a large pan and put some EVOO (olive oil) in it, and then add the chicken.

Grab your veggies - red + yellow peppers, mushrooms, garlic, and tomatoes - and chop them up. I combined them all in a bowl afterwards because it was easy to just toss the ingredients into the pan afterwards.

Once the chicken has been cooking for about 10-15 minutes, add the veggies to the pan. Cook until the chicken has browned. I sometimes take the chicken out of the pan, cut it open, and try a little piece to make sure it tastes done before fully shutting off my stove top.

You now have both a tasty and healthy meal (and maybe even some leftovers!)

Yes/No Foods: Chicken Stir-fry recipe
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 1/3 package mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper (and 1 green, if you like)
  • About 1/4 or 1/6 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 roma tomato
  • EVOO for pan
  • (optional: 1-2 TBSP of honey)
30-40 mins cook time
15 minutes prep (chopping time)

1. Put some EVOO in the pan, and add the chicken breasts.
2. Chop up peppers, mushrooms, garlic, tomato. For the mushrooms, I had whole mushrooms, so I chopped off the stems first. Combine in bowl if you like.
3. Cook chicken for 10-15 minutes on medium to medium-high heat.
4. When chicken starts to brown, add veggies and soy sauce.
5. Cook for 10-15 minutes more or until chicken looks done (you can take it out of the pan and cut it in the middle to see - if it doesn't look done, or tastes "gamey," put it back in the pan for a bit more). 

*I only used red/yellow pepper in this batch, even though the green is in the initial pictures, because I had a lot of veggies at that point and didn't need more.

*To add a bit of sweetness to the mix, you can add 1-2 TBSP of honey - I've done this other times and it was very good. 

*The 1/4 cup of soy sauce was good but a bit salty - if you prefer, you could use 1/5 or 1/6 cup instead.

Some things to know about Door to Door Organics:
  • My readers can get $10 off their first Door to Door Organics order! Click here, and then enter code MIFILMS at checkout.
  • If you are ordering a box for yourself, they range from "bitty" size (good for 1-2 people) to "large," which is good for families.
  • Make sure to click here first to double-check that they deliver to your area. Shipping is always free
  • If you order from their Shop, the way it works it is added to your box order (you must have a box order first). This time, I received a Bitty box and the Shop items were included, though they were shipped in two boxes. The chicken actually came frozen with dry ice, which was pretty interesting, while the soy sauce and non-perishable items arrived with the produce.
  • Something cool is that you are always allowed to substitute up to five items per box order before your box is delivered. In my last order, I substituted a sweet potato and more kiwis in place of veggies like lettuce and kale which I knew I don't usually eat.
