Asian Style Chicken Vermicelli Stir Fry | Perfect One Pot Meal

Chicken, vegetables & vermicelli combined together, a perfect one-pot meal…

One-pot meals are my favorite, on a busy day or lazy day or any day one-pot meals come to rescue me. The beauty of one-pot meals is that we can cook everything in one pot, from the protein to the vegetables and the starch. And who doesn’t enjoy minimal clean-up after cooking?

In this dish, I’ve mixed chicken, mixed vegetables & vermicelli. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and try different combinations of protein, vegetables, and starches.
