Reviews for Chicken Pepper Stir-Fry
"Pretty good. I would probably add some broccoli if I made it again."
"A hit with my family! I've made it twice and on the second time, I didn't add as much brown sugar so I added a drained can of pineapple chunks. WOW!! Delish"
"Made this tonight with turkey strips.... and it was SO yum! The sauce was just the right mix of tangy/salty/sweet."
"Loved, loved, loved this dish. Thanks so much Kelly for submitting this recipe."
"My whole family loved this recipe. We will definitely do it again!"
"Yummy!! I added broccoli and water chestnuts to mine and it was delish:)"
"Great recipe. The only variation I did was kick it up a notch. Instead of cooking the chicken in oil, I use a szechuan stir fry sauce. Very tasty, if you like it spicy."
"Very good and colorful. Has sweet flavor...almost carmalized with the brown sugar."
