  3. Add onion, garlic, and veggies and cook, stirring occasionally, just until crisp tender. 
  4. Whisk stir fry sauce and pour ¼ cup over chicken and vegetables and stir gently to combine.

** This recipe makes a lot of stir fry sauce. I save the rest and use it to reheat leftovers.

You should also feel free to add or substitute any veggies of your choice. We’ve used broccoli, carrots, peas, and cabbage. All are delicious!
