A couple of months ago I was looking for a kid-friendly chicken recipe and did a google search. I found the basics for a stir-fry and added my own style to it and this is what I came up with. It is very simple and quick. This chicken stir fry recipe does not have any vegetables in it, because I find many kids like to keep their vegetables and main course separate. If your family enjoys all-in-one meals, by all means, add some red pepper, snow peas, broccoli and/or mushrooms to this stir fry chicken recipe.
