Quick Almond Chicken Stir-Fry

"I make this dish often because it is so quick and easy to prepare," writes Darlene Brenden from Salem, Oregon. "My family likes the flavor the sugar snap peas and almonds add. Sometimes I top it with chow mein noodles for extra crunch."

    This one is a definite repeat for my family. I haven't found many stir fry sauces we all enjoy, but this might be the one. I added bell peppers and green onion right before the snap peas and just sprinkled slivered almonds on top after serving.

    My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this recipe. Super easy to make and really tasty. I like lots of veggies so I added strips of red bell pepper, broccoli and water chestnuts along with the sugar snap peas. Definitely made a difference.

    Very good and easy to make. I think the recipe could use more sauce and about half the almonds. 1 cup of almonds was just too much.

    This recipe was okay. The sauce was tasty and my 5 year old son ate it.
