Chicken and Shrimp Stir Fry with Uncle Bens Rice

My husband Gary and I love eating at Chinese and Asian restaurants.  We enjoy everything from take out and buffet eating, to sitting down and ordering off the menu.  Recently we’ve tried our hands at making some of our favorite recipes from these establishments.

Gary actually developed today’s recipe for you.  He’s such a great cook!  He originally made this as a Chicken  Stir Fry, and then I just suggested that we add the shrimp, water chestnuts, and rice.  These ingredients add so much to this dish! (It’s so great when you have 2 people who can bounce ideas off of each other, especially in the kitchen!)

Chicken & Shrimp Stir Fry


Uncle Ben's® Long Grain & Wild Rice, Original Recipe (or Fast Cook Recipe)

1 bag frozen veggies (preferably an Asian blend with broccoli, red pepper carrots, baby corn, peas, water chestnuts, etc.)

1 can water chestnuts, drained (if you can't find a veggie blend that has these)

1 can baby corn, drained (if you can't find a veggie blend that has these)

2-3 skinless boneless chicken breasts

1 bag large cooked shrimp, peeled & de-veined (or about 30-40 pieces)

a little oil, for cooking

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp pepper

2 tsp minced onion

1 1/2 tsp minced garlic

1 heaping tbsp four

1 tbsp worcestershire sauce sauce


Chop up raw chicken in to small bite-sized pieces. Place in large skillet with a little oil, and cook until chicken is completely cooked. Then add pre-cooked shrimp to the skillet and allow the shrimp to heat through. (You can also purchase raw shrimp and cook it completely yourself. We just prefer to use the pre-cooked because it is more convenient.)

As you're cooking your chicken and shrimp, you can go ahead and start cooking your Uncle Ben's® Long Grain & Wild Rice, Original Recipe in a separate pot. (If you're using the fast cook version, then you can just wait until you're almost done cooking the stir fry.)

Once cooked, remove chicken and shrimp from skillet, and place on plate lined with a paper towel.

Then place frozen veggies in skillet. (Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet, if needed.) I like to use a an Asian veggie blend that includes broccoli, red pepper, carrots, baby corn, peas, and water chestnuts, but if I can't find this, then I buy canned water chestnuts and baby corn. Both of these ingredients are option, but I find they add a lot in terms of taste and texture. Cook these on low to medium heat, stirring frequently, until completely heated through.

As your veggies are cooking, mix together chicken broth, soy sauce, worcestershire, and seasonings in a separate bowl or cup. Once your veggies are heated through, stir in your sauce. Then add your chicken and shrimp back in to the skillet. Stir until all veggies and meat are well coated with sauce.

Serve your stir fry with Uncle Ben's® Long Grain & Wild Rice on the side, or serve the stir fry on top of a bed of the Uncle Ben's® Long Grain & Wild Rice. Enjoy!
