Julia’s Easy Chicken Stir-fry

Chicken stir-fry is a good weeknight dinner. The main thing is to have all the ingredients prepared so that the actual cooking is quick.

For a shortcut there is no problem using a packet of fresh stir-fry veges from the fruit & veg section or a bag of frozen stir-fry veges. You can also buy the chicken stir-fry strips already prepared for another time saver.

The Sensible Sisters prefer free range chicken.

Here is Julia’s Easy Chicken Stir-fry…
