Sesame Chicken Edamame Bowl

Becky Luigart-Stayner

Frozen stir-fry mixes and frozen shelled edamame save prep time and don't require thawing. The slightly sweet and nutty stir-fried vegetables complement the delicately flavored chicken. You can serve this over udon noodles or rice stick noodles instead of rice.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup chicken mixture and 1/3 cup rice)
