Living in China transformed my idea of craveable Chinese food. Before living there, the Chinese food I craved was Chinese takeout standards, fried bits of wonder meat smothered in heavy, sweet sauces. Don’t get me wrong. I still have many craveable moments with takeout standards, such as when I’m pregnant, but now I have more dishes to crave. Luckily, the new dishes aren’t as heavy. Sweet and sour, sesame chicken, general Tso’s aren’t readily on menus in China. And a simple dish, such as this chicken with peppers, would frequently pop up on the menu at small mom and pop restaurants –it’s cheap, easy to make, and it tastes great, despite its simple ingredients. Chicken and pepper stir fry should be the new standard for craveable Chinese food. The stir fry is simple comfort food. I fully endorse colored peppers (and use them a lot!), but in this recipe I like to use green peppers because they’re not as sweet. I think the stir fry would be great with a combo of green and red peppers (next time). The stir fry is easy to prepare, it has lots of flavor, it’s good for you, and it’s delicious. What else can I say? Try it.
