Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry


Easy 20 minute meal -chicken and vegetable stir fry.

Soo I have to admit… I’m kind of picky. I don’t really like Chinese food, and I DO NOT like sea food. You will never see me post anything fishy around here. ;)

There are a few Chinese dishes I do love.  I love PF Changs Lettuce Wraps and Honey Seared Chicken. And I like Pandas Orange Chicken with fried rice. That’s as far as it goes eating out.  However at home I love to make stir fry. It’s super easy and actually pretty healthy! I love that you can add variation as well. Like I said I’m kind of picky so I stick to bell peppers, carrots and maybe broccoli. So here’s my recipe… it may even be similar to yours!

    It’s odd, I love stir fry and it’s very easy to make, but I never make it. In fact i made it about a week ago for the first time in years. Kikkoman makes a really good stir fry sauce too.
    Thanks for posting!

      haha I know that was the same with me. The first 2 years I was married I NEVER made it! Now I make it about once a month. YUMMY!

    I absolutely LOVE Mr. Yoshida’s! We buy it at Sam’s Club. My grandma is Japanese and I know an authentic recipe for teriyaki sauce, but when I’m feeling lazy and craving some Americanized asian food, I use Mr. Yoshida’s. It’s quick and too easy!

      OH I bet that teriyaki sauce is good! My dad served a mission in Japan and always talks about the food there. But yes I’m pretty lazy when it comes to sauces. If I have one that already tastes good.. why not use that one?! lol

    This is indeed a wonder-filling dish that kids love to eat their fresh vegetables, or frozen vegetables with great flavor. 
    We made this same recipe for our family back in the Early 90s after a neighbor turned us on to Yoshida’s. We love it!
    In Kansas it has gotten hard to find, however. It is liquid gold at our house. Fast, easy and healthy dinner after a hard day at work. ENJOY ! The Pitzer Family
