This is not hard to make, chop the peppers and onions ahead of time. The recipe may be doubled, but cook the chicken in 4 batches instead of 2, don't make the mistake of cooking all of the chicken at once!

My family really enjoyed this meal last night! The saltines add a different flavor than we are used to with stir-fry but it was a nice change. I'll definitely be making this again. Instead of the green bell pepper I used yellow 'cuz the kids complain about the green (strange?). Wonderful!
