Stir Fry's are one of my favorite meals to make because not only are they super yummy, they are a great way to clean out your fridge! I typically make them when I have a bunch of vegetables that need to be used up. The recipe below makes enough to feed 4 people, plus leftovers! I always cook with leftovers in mind so I don't have to make another new meal the next day, because who has time to cook a brand new meal every single night? Not me.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw my Insta Story showing how I made Chicken Stir Fry for dinner the other night! That was a quick glimpse on how to make the delicious meal, but below I provided a detailed recipe for you all!
If you have any variations of Stir Fry that you absolutely love, share in the comments below! I am always on the hunt for new recipes and love to try out new things!
