Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

During this time of year you can’t go wrong with a good stir-fry recipe. This delicious chicken and vegetable stir-fry makes great use of fresh summer produce and cooks up quickly so you aren’t heating your house up by using the stove or oven all day. I love how fresh and healthy this meal tastes, and I also love how you can modify it to suit your own tastes. I didn’t have any cabbage, so I left it out, and feel free to change up the vegetables to include what you have on hand. I happen to love snap peas and peppers, so this was pretty much perfect for me as written. The sauce is nice and flavorful, and very easy to make. All in all this meal comes together in less than 20 minutes – you can’t beat that on a busy summer evening!
