Chicken Stir-Fry Bake

One night I decided to use frozen vegetables in my chicken stir-fry. Not wanting to stand watch over the stovetop, I baked the entree in the oven. People say this tastes like it’s hot from the skillet. What’s more, it’s ready in little more than half an hour! —Carly Carter, Nashville, Tennessee

    Not sure if I did something wrong, but we thought this was just ok. The meal had a great flavor, just not enough of it. It was very understated. It also tasted a little dry, not sure why. Maybe I could use some hoison sauce? I used some fresh vegetables, but even though I stirred it when there was 7 minutes left, they were still pretty raw. I will be steaming all the fresh veggies first if I make this again. When I cooked my chicken I used sesame oil, so that added a bit of flavor. I served this with potstickers. It was a decent meal, but unless I can figure out a way to give it more flavor or more moisture (without being watery), then we may not make it again.

    Very impressed with this dish! I was concerned that it might dry out so when there were 7 minutes left of cooking time I stirred everything together, covered it back up and placed back in the oven! I think it's very important to stir it since I read a review that it was to dry! Perfect! This was so easy to throw together! Anytime a recipe calls for a package of veggies I always steam them first as opposed to just thawing them! That's just me and they turn out just the right texture for us! My stir fry bag of veggies had broccoli, pea pods, carrots and water chestnuts! I added some chopped onion! Yum!Of course we had our bottle of soy sauce on the table for our individual servings and our bottle of sesame seeds! We love sesame seeds on any Chinese food!Great meal! Going into our dinner rotation for sure!

    I didn't like this at all. Turned out dry and after 30 minutes of baking the veggies on top were not hot. Very salty too.

    This is really delicious! The next time I make it, I will add pineapple bits to it. That would be amazing!
