Reviews for Chicken & Vegetable Stir-Fry
"i only had bag stir fry vegetables on hand and i didn't add much of the additional salt, even tho soy sauce is low sodium, i'm not used to salty..it was decent...i agree with the one star person tho...it smelled really good but i didn't think it had alot of taste to it, other than i could taste the heat from the red pepper...it was not bad tho..i'm not a great cook to know what to add but i think i'd add more garlic first..oh and i didn't use cilantro, i always associate that with mexican dishes and my boyfriend doesn't like its flavor..he liked the dish tho...it was healthy and it used my chicken up."
"This is a great recipe...lots of vegies and chicken with a nice light sauce. Did not have to change a thing. My family loved it!"

"YUM! Left out the cauliflowerets (didn't have any on hand) and used a green pepper instead of a red one and didn't use cilantro. Great way to eat a lot of healthy veggies!~ Theresa"
"Way better than the store-bought mixes! And all of the ingredients are on hand! I used whatever veggies I had in the fridge added more garlic (of course!) The only thing is, I tried the cilantro at the end and it just didn't go with the dish. We moved and miss our old home-town take-out. This makes up for it!"
"We love this recipe!!"
"Followed the recipe exactly. Totally flavorless!"
"Great recipe. I liked that the garlic was added at the end, as well as the sprinkling of crushed red pepper -- helped lend a richer flavor than other stir-fry blends I've made. Whole family enjoyed this, age 2 to parents."
"my family (kids 5 & 9) liked it very much. My husband asked me if it was a bag mix! Nice!! Great recipe to try."
