Simple Chicken Stir Fry

This stir fry is a bit sweet, a bit salty, and a bit spicy....Oh, yes, and let's not forget SIMPLE!  I was in the mood for a good stir fry, but didn't want to put a lot of thought into it... so I opened the fridge and came up with this idea.  Now these are ingredients I always have on hand...this may not be the case for go ahead and change it up.. use what inspires you when you open up your fridge!

So pretty and colorful! You know I love a good stir fry :) Great veggie combo, great flavors. I wish I had some now for breakfast!!

Next time try the velveting method, I promise you'll never go back to plain stir fry :)

I'm a huge fan of chicken stirfry. My kids all have memories of me standing in the kitchen, making a stirfry with 'All Things Considered' on the radio. This recipe sounds delicious. :-)
