Saucy Garlic Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by strawberrybird

After several unsucessful stir-fry attempts, I came up with this recipe adapted from several different sources. It's easy and just the right blend of falvors for my family. You can use whatever vegetables you like, but I use onions, broccoli, and water chestnuts.

This was easy to make & a nice weeknight meal. I reduced the amount of red pepper flakes by half and used carrots, green beans, onions, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, & water chesnuts. Next time I will make additional sauce to stir in at the end so there is more sauce to ladle on the rice. Made for ZWT6~ Asia. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
