Chicken and Potato Stir Fry

This was a little higher in calories than I normally like to make but then I realized that I didnt really need to serve a side with it because it is a rather heavy dish. It's called a stir fry but, the potatoes turned it into more of a stew. Still delicious, though. And a little more time consuming than usual for a weeknight dinner but, worth it.

Yields 4 servings.
Recipe from BHG via Recipe dot com email.
323 calories per serving.

4 medium potatoes, cut into 3/4 in pieces
4 medium carrots, thinly sliced

1 tsp thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
