There’s nothing like a quick and healthy stir-fry to use up fresh produce and foolproof chicken thighs, served over brown or steamed rice, or my favorite, millet and brown rice ramen noodles.

If you’re a pepper lover like me, this is a great time to try two uncommonly delicious pepper varieties — Aleppo (Mediterranean) and Szechuan peppercorns. A staple in Chinese cuisine, Szechuan pepper isn’t spicier than black, white or chili pepper, but very aromatic and gives you a mouth tingle to enhance flavor. In step 2, adjust the stir-fry time to not overcook the protein.
