Chicken & Cilantro Stir-Fry – Juicy & Delicious

Chicken & Cilantro Stir-Fry – Juicy & Delicious

Besides the many health and nutritional benefits to cooking in MEC’s pots and pans there are some specific and unique benefits to stir-frying:  you can cook with very little to no oil (pan is naturally nonstick!), no need to babysit pan or there is no need for constant stirring because steam and moisture is retained inside and the heat is distributed evenly without the need for constant stirring.

The powerful yet gentle far infrared heat keeps natural color and taste of food which means essential nutrients like flavonoids and phytonutrients are retained.  Also, less water is needed because of MEC’s excellent steam management properties, steam (water-soluble nutrients) is not gushing out of the pot but stays in to get condensed and settles right back into the food while cooking.

This dish turns out aromatic with juicy bites of chicken cooked in a tomato and onion base with an assortment of spices, and topped off with freshly chopped cilantro! It goes well with plain rice, flavored rice and/or any choice of breads.
