Chicken recipes: Stir-fried minced chicken and vegetables for lunch

Chicken recipes series

When I cook, I usually cook small portions that are just enough for three of us and sometimes, I’d have a bit more just in case either of the two men at home wants to eat more. It is not easy trying to figure out what to cook even when I only cook twice a week, during the weekends. Usually, I’d go for something simple and easy so as to be able to get lunch ready within an hour or so.
