Cooking Class

Last week, there was a healthy cooking class offered to the community. About 10 adults showed up and it was a blast! We got to watch the "cook" make a stir-fry meal and also learned about the food pyramid. So, after eating the very good stir-fry, I decided to make it at home.
Corbin chopped right along with me. He mixed and he chopped and he cooked his own stir-fry!
It was still a little raw when he was done we ate the one I made instead!
So yummy!!!
I don't know how many like really easy 20 minute meals...but this is one of them! So, here's the recipe for anyone interested! Enjoy!
1 chicken breast, boned, skinned and cut into thin strips (or small chunks)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 c. thinly sliced carrots
1 c. thinly sliced celery
2 c. shredded cabbage
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 c. chicken broth
2 Tbsp. cornstarch

Cover and cook for 5 minutes over low heat or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Blend cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Add to chicken mixture. Cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles.
