Summer Stir Fry

As noted in detail in Doom's entry for Pineapple Butter Chicken, Latveria is flush with chickens. Awash.

Twas a mild winter, and the mountain pigeons never quite settled into a proper cold-weather behavior. In previous years, they would nestle in their coops. This year, thanks to a malfunctioning Weather Dominator from that numbskull Laird James McCullen Destro XXIV -- sabotaged perhaps by The Accursed Richards -- the Latverian Strutting Wickerbeaks treated the dim weeks like a spring break, cavorting and wenching as only giddy chickens can. And so, Latveria is up to Doom's cape rope in more chickens than ever, and the peasants have responded in a variety of ways, including training them for poultry circuses, using them as footballs, and of course making more chicken dishes.

Well, curs, if you must, do it right. Heed once more the Secret Gypsy Mama Cookbook, the Greasy Grimoire, and make a dish worthy of the Von Doom name.

Summer Stir Fry
Gather ye these vittles:

1 pound boneless chicken pieces cubed
1 medium onion chopped
1 cup carrot coins
1 cup chicken broth, separated into 1/4 cup and 3/4 cup increments
1 cup rice cooked according to package instructions
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup red bell pepper chopped
2 cloves garlic (at least)
2 tablespoons sliced ginger
1 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon cooking oil

Doom commands you to:

Cook chicken, garlic, and ginger in oil on medium high heat until chicken browns. Move garlic and ginger about to prevent burning

Add carrots, onion, 3/4 cup of broth, soy sauce, and sugar. Cover and cook for five minutes and stir a few times.

Add pepper and mushrooms. Again cover, cook, and stir for five minutes.

Mix cornstarch and remaining broth in a small bowl and add that to pan. Stir together until sauce thickens.

Plate over bed of rice.

Doom commands you to relish.
