Chinese Chicken Spaghetti Recipe

Chinese Chicken Spaghetti Recipe

It's hard to believe that something that comes together this easily could be tasty and lower in fat. This dish is pretty zippy, but if you like your stir-fries extra spicy, increase the red pepper flakes a bit. -Jenna Noel of Glendale, Arizona
