These four items are always in our house.
Permanently on my shopping list and definitely stocked up on when I find them on sale.
For those nights when the kids are cranky, or we have multiple basketball practices, or we get home late, or I'm just plain unprepared, those four items can quickly be whipped up into a chicken stir fry dinner that is easy and everyone loves. Well, ok, I can't say they all love all of the meal, but I know everyone will at least eat the chicken and rice part of it! And for my house, if everyone eats at least part of the meal, that meal's a keeper.
I don't really look at the recipe when I make this anymore so half the time I forget the ginger-still tastes the same. I've also started using 2 cans of chicken broth and doubling the soy sauce and cornstarch to make more sauce for us. I've used lots of different vegetables to make this too-I usually just use whatever frozen vegetables I have in the freezer, sometimes a bag of stir fry vegetables, sometimes I just cut up onions and peppers and throw them in.
Easy, quick and yummy!
