One-pot stir fry chicken is nourishing and quick with lots of vegetables, gluten free tamari sauce, and tender chicken.
This stir fry chicken is all Scarlett O’Hara’s fault. Let me explain.
If there is one thing that my family loves, it’s movies, especially the classics.
I remember my mom and grandmother talking about their favorite films when I was a child. Of course, back then movie theaters rarely showed re-runs of older films so I never got a chance to see them until Turner Classic Movies (TCM) began showing them on cable T.V. in the mid 1990s.
My family loves watching these classics together (since we are seeing them for the first time, they seem like new movies) and looking up the biographies of the actors to learn more about their lives off the screen.
I guess you would say we are film buffs.
Last week we had the opportunity to see Gone With The Wind at our local movie theatre. For myself and the kids, it was our first time seeing the film on the big screen.
My husband remembers seeing it in his neighborhood theatre back in 1967 when he was in grade school. He had been amazed and couldn’t wait to share this experience with us.
TCM released this special showing in honor of the epic film’s 75th anniversary celebration. It had been fully remastered with a specially produced introduction by TCM host Robert Osborne.
Watching the sizzling romance between Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) unfold with all the amazing sets, special effects, beautiful costumes and memorable lines, kept us riveted the entire time.
I always feel a little more hopeful after seeing this film. Don’t you?
Gluten? Ha! ”As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.” Worries? “I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.”
But show time was 7:00 which is our usual dinnertime, and we had a tight schedule.
We planned to pick up my older son at the train station (even though he has moved out, he wasn’t going to miss joining us for this event).
Above all, we wanted to arrive at the theatre early enough to get good seats and warm buttered popcorn.
I had to get a quick dinner on the table early because we wouldn’t be getting out of the theatre until 11:00. It’s a four-hour film.
This one-pot stir fry chicken would be nourishing and quick with lots of vegetables, gluten free tamari sauce, and tender chicken.
I would only have to marinate the chicken for 15 minutes and could easily serve it over rice from the previous night’s Chinese take-out. How convenient.
Frankly, my dear, this simple stir-fry hit the spot. I think Scarlett and Rhett would have approved.
Here is the recipe for the next time you need a meal in a snap. There’s a free printable recipe card with a complete list of ingredients available at the end of the post.

Looks yummy! I saw Gone With the Wind as a kid, on TV, and I don’t remember really appreciating it that much, probably because it was a long movie and I am not into the whole sitting still thing. Still, I’d be up for watching it again as an adult, and I’ll be seeing it in the theater would be really great.
Thank you, Doree
Funny. One of my sons was just telling me that it was one of those films he enjoyed so much he could have sat another hour.
You simply must see it again. If you watch it at home, you’ll be able to pause it when you feel the need to move. 🙂 The combination of historical accuracy, sets, music, directing, and casting make this an awesome film.
Oh yes, I am seriously hungry now 🙂 Looks fabulous. But, even more I love how you shared a beautiful story about your family. That makes this meal even more appealing!
Yes, even though dinner was rushed we were all eager to see the movie.

It looks delicious. Stir fries are my favourite when it comes to quick cooking. They’re just so simple, and you can do so much with them. And Gone With the Wind is one of my favourite movies but I’ve never seen it on the big screen.
Hurrah another fan!
Yes, I usually add bell peppers or you may like to add snap peas or mushrooms. 🙂

That movie made me so mad! Haha! Scarlett needed a few good spankings. 😉 That stir-fry looks delicious, though! 😀
Fi Morrison says
I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t seen Gone with the Wind, but I do know that that meal looks amazing! I’ve pinned it to try with my family at some point!
Any other classics you recommend?
It’s a great film with so many memorable lines. There are so may amazing classics like the beautifully romantic Casablanca, the delightful and funny Singin’ In The Rain, and my all time favorite The Sound of Music. Have you seen either of those?
Thanks for commenting and pinning, Fi! I appreciate you. ❤
Looks Delicious! Gonna have to try it myself, never thought to pair a meal and a movie. What an awesome and unique idea!

Love this and we are huge stir fry fans! Must watch this movie again! Such a classic and lovely they sometimes put the classics on at the theatre. I love showing my kids some of the older movies.
