An amazing way to use that big bag of cut greens from your fridge - put them in a stir fry! It's a quick, delicious and healthy meal.

Nothing beats a stir fry for a quick and healthy mid-week meal. Lately, I’ve been doing a stir fry to help use up the big bags of cut greens that I buy at the grocery store. It’s so easy to throw a few handfuls of already cut greens into the skillet with other veggies.

For today’s stir fry I’ve used a blend of Southern greens. These come already packaged together. It’s a mixture of chopped turnip greens, mustard greens and collard greens, all ready to go. If you can’t find this medley, you can use collard greens or go with kale.

To make the stir fry you slice the chicken thinly and saute it in oil. Remove it from the pan and add sliced bell peppers and sesame seeds. Cook until the peppers are cooked a bit, you know, al dente or as soft as you like. Then add the chopped greens and continue to cook and stir until they’re wilted. Then you return the chicken to the pan and add a mixture of honey and soy sauce. Enjoy!

Cut Greens Sesame Stir Fry

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • ½ tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 10 oz. cut green medley of mustard greens, turnip greens and collard greens
  • 1 spring onion, chopped

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together honey and soy sauce until well combined. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil and the sesame oil over medium high heat until very hot. Add the chicken. Stir often until cooked through, 4 -6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the skillet and then add the bell pepper, garlic and sesame seeds. Stir and cook until pepper is al dente, 2-3 minutes. Add the greens. Cook stirring continuously until wilted, 3 minutes.
  4. Return the chicken to the skillet and add the honey mixture. Stir to heat through. Serve garnished with the spring onion.
