Oriental Garlic Chicken with Zucchini

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Manda

This is a fantastic stir-fry dish with lots of wonderful garlic flavor! You can play around with the veggie part...I've added broccoli instead of the zucchini, sometimes throw in some bamboo chutes, baby corn...just go with whatever catches your eye (and your tastebuds!). No matter which way you do it, this is a fantastic restaurant-quality dish that you will want to make again and again!!
