Easy Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry

This is a quick easy way to make a good stir fry. You can use Chicken or Beef and any veggies you have in the fridge. The Sauce is a yummy garlic hoisin sauce that I love on just about anything. Its got a sweet spicy taste. I also like to eat stir fry with brown rice since I like to incorporate whole grains whenever I can. Oh and you can't forget those yummy crispy chow mein noodles to top it off and give it some crunch. If I would have had peanuts, Id have added those to this dish as well. I bet cashews would go wonderfully too. Yum!

1 lb chicken breast, cut into 1 inch chuncks
2 large carrots, sliced on the bias
3 large celery sticks, cut on the bias
6-8 asparagus spears (depending on size) cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 bell pepper, chopped (a red one would have added more color)
1 cup of Soy Vay Garlic Hoisin Sauce
peanut oil

Marinate the chicken in 1/2 cup of hoisin sauce for at least a couple or hours.

In a large skillet or wok, heat oil on Med heat for 1 minute. Add the veggies and stir fry until the carrots and celery are crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Pour onto a plate and set aside.

Now heat a little more oil and fry up the chicken until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Return the veggies to the pan and add remaining 1/2 cup of sauce or more to taste. Heat an additional minute until hot and bubbly. Serve over rice.
