Chicken and vegetable dishes are a staple of the fitness world. They’re high-protein, low-fat, and if you use the right recipes, they can be really tasty.

This stir fry recipe is from my bestselling cooking The Shredded Chefand it’s one of my go-to “quick & easy” meals. Hope you enjoy!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each), rinsed, dried, trimmed of fat, cut into thin strips

2 tablespoons red wine

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups broccoli florets

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

In a small mixing bowl, combine the red wine, soy sauce, cornstarch, stevia, and salt. Mix well to dissolve the cornstarch.

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

  • Goes without saying that this recipe is perfect on a cutting plan.

    I’ve tweaked this recipe a couple of times just for a change and had really awesome results without greatly affecting the nutritional values.

    Adding zucchini cut into thin slices with other veggies is a nice change; long, thin strands are a decent noodle alternative actually.

    I’ve swapped out the sauce part of this recipe before with fresh ginger, lemon juice and garlic which tastes great.

    How do you measure out 1 serving? Do you weight it again or just do a rough visual estimate?
