Veggie and Chicken Stir Fry Over Millet

2 bags Fresh Start mixed stir fry vegetables
1/3 bag baby spinach
3 cooked chicken breasts, cubed
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. pesto


2 C. millet
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 C. broth

The millet takes longer to cook than the stir fry, so start with that!  Rinse it first to make it fluffier.

Heat olive oil in large saucepan.  Add millet and stir until coated.  Allow to get golden.  Add broth (I used some frozen homemade stuff I had on hand)  Simmer 30 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, stir fry veggies in large skillet coated with oil.  While still crispy, add in chicken and pesto and toss.  Add a little water and lower heat and put on lid to steam veggies while millet finishes cooking.

SAM_0373This was one of those nights when I hadn’t done my planning and was grateful that I had some reasonable stuff around to throw together.  I always try to keep some cooked chicken and chicken broth in the freezer.

I really love millet and will keep trying different ways to prepare it!

I always buy the Fresh Start veggies when they put them on sale at my local grocery store.  They stay good much longer than the ‘expiration date’ thank goodness.

The kids loved this.  Some added ranch to theirs and others thought it was yummy as is.
