Sweet ‘n Spicy Chicken Stir Fry

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

This is another old dish that I created when I was heavy into my stir frying. I love stir fry as it is so quick and easy for week night meals and pretty healthy. The other week while browsing in Goodwill I found a brand new Greenpan Wok and I’ve beenย  enjoying the wonders of stir frying again. I can’t repeat too much how important it is to have a great non-stick pan, preferably a wok. It makes everything so much easier. I came up with this easy sweet and spicy sauce while experimenting and it’s one of my favorites for my stir fry meals.You can use whatever type of vegetables you prefer and frozen works just as well as fresh.
