Honey-Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I was first married, we didn’t have a working oven or grill, so I had to use the stovetop for everything. After a few months of the same thing, I needed some new ideas and developed this simple chicken stir-fry. I make half of it when we’re home alone and can easily double it for company. –April Walcher, Hutchinson, Kansas
