"I came across this gem of a recipe in one of my very old issues of Light and Tasty, trying to find a new way to use some chicken smoked sausage I had bought on sale a few weeks ago. This is probably the fastest stir fry that I've made and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. I used a bag of coleslaw mix to cut prep time with the cabbage. I also added a bit more salt and about a half a tablespoon of soy sauce to pep up the flavor. We also liked how the rice was mixed into the skillet. Genius."
