Reviews for Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry
"I made this as directed but my husband really prefers his broccoli well cooked. Next time I may try zucchini. Otherwise I thought it was pretty good. I thought the pepper flakes spiced it up nicely."
"Yeah, this was not my favorite stir fry by a long shot, though my husband did have seconds and the 1.5 year old gobbled it up. A little bland and unexciting. I made it as written, I think, maybe went a little light on the veggies."
