Almond Vegetable Chicken Stir-Fry

Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California shared the recipe for this yummy mainstay. Pineapple juice, ginger and soy sauce lend a slightly tangy flavor to the chicken strips and veggies in this pretty blend. A package of frozen vegetables speeds along the prep time, making this a quick meal for busy weeknights.

    I really liked this recipe. The almonds gave it a wonderful crunch. I used my own combination of fresh vegetables and stir-fried a little before covering them to cook. Really good!!

    Even my picky eater described it as tasty and got seconds, even if she did leave off vegetables.
