Stir fry recipe

 The Chicken and Vegetable Stir-fry is very customizable, you can choose your own variety of vegetables but it’s a very good idea to choose the crunchy variety because you don’t want to end up with wilted veggies in your stir-fry.

This stir-fry does not require blending your peppers, all you need to do is to julienne or slice the Peppers and Vegetables. Basically, this is a recipe on how to make Chicken sauce with vegetables because the juicy Tomatoes provides the sauce in the stir-fry.

Notes:

***Use the Juiciest Tomato you can get, in order to get a reasonable quantity of sauce in your stir-fry but don’t overwhelm your stir fry with the Sauce.

***I added the Carrots first because it takes a little longer for it to get done.

***You don’t need so much salt for this recipe because you will be using Soy Sauce which is quite Salty.

Thanks for this, I am looking to be healthier and as meat is getting costly where I live, I am looking for recipes that have more vegies and less meat.
