One day per week our diet schedule contains chicken! So, the day before yesterday, and considering the fact that my time was so limited because I had to cook for dinner, plus I had to do the laundry, plus I had to go visit you my friends and see what’s new in your kitchens, plus, plus, plus a gazillion things, I had to improvise for a quick and easy chicken dish for dinner. So many things, so little time! I know it’s the story of your lives too!

And then it hit me! I could stir-fry the chicken, not? Yes, but not the usual Asian stir-fry, something closer to my area; med yes med for sure.

I marinated the chicken, while I was doing some of the things in my endless house work list and then I stir-fried it. And let me tell you how awesome this chicken was! Unbelievably tender, tangy and sweet at the same time. I accompanied it with Arabic little pitas, but I believe it would go perfectly with souvlaki pitas (I didn’t have any, can you believe it? Shame on me Greek in Greece and not having souvlaki pitas in my fridge, but hey I have teriyaki sauce, I have coconut milk, I have maple syrup and I have garam masala, but no pitas lol).

I am going to stop rambling now and I am going to do something useful in my life and give you the recipe. Very easy and very tasty.
