MEAL IDEA: Serve with cooked carrots and boil-in-the-bag rice. Add fresh cut fruit and fortune cookies for dessert. *From Publix FamilyStyle magazine.

Colorful and flavorful! Ironically (since this is a Publix recipe) my Publix was out of turkey cutlets so I used chicken. I will use the ponzu and cornstarch mixture again in many stir fries....great idea.
