    This is a quick, simple one skillet chicken meal. This has an Asian feel and taste, but my grandkids enjoyed it, nice way to get them to eat their veggies.

      I couldn't find the stir fry sauce in my local grocery store so I substituted bottled lemon pepper marinade and added fresh basil. Not sure if this still constitutes the recipe but it was delicious! Keeping with the Asian feel, I used (frozen) mixed vegetables with snap peas, green beans, water chestnuts, carrots and red peppers. I even used brown rice in a packet that steamed in 5 mins. The sauce very lightly coats the chicken and vegetables enabling you to taste all the flavors. Very quick and easy to prepare recipe. I think this is the perfect dish for spring and summer meals when you want something substantial yet light.

      This made A VERY SATISFYING CHICKEN DISH & a welcome addition to my increasing store of great chicken breast recipes! However, another time I want to make this with fresh veggies instead of the frozen ones (personal preference at work there)! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
