Fast and Easy Stir Fry

I love stir fry! Any excuse to use the wok and cook up something usually makes me happy. Now there are about a million ways to make a stir fry and you can add almost anything and use all types of sauces. The prep time for cutting all the meat, veggies and sauce is about 20-30 minutes and the cook time is about 10 minutes. The one trick that I have learned is to cook the meat first, remove it, then cook the veggies. Add the sauce and then add back the meat; serve with rice - yum! Here is one option to cook up.

Ingredients - all sliced thin:
3 chicken breasts
10 mushrooms
1 onion
1/2 cup Snow Peas
1/2 cup Broccoli slaw
1/4 cup Almonds, toasted
Peanut Sauce

Let your wok heat up and add oil (peanut or vegetable work best). Make sure that the oil is hot, then add the chicken. Cook it until fully done, then remove to a clean bowl. Next add the onion and broccoli slaw. Cook until the onions are translucent. Add the snow peas and mushrooms and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the peanut sauce and chicken (including any juices). Right before serving, add the toasted almonds.

Interesting, I think I'll need to find this peanut sauce in the grocery store!

Great recipe!
