"I don't know why this always reminds me of spring. I think because of the snow peas. This is the first meal I made for my husband and it is still one of his favorites, 10 years later.
"I make this all year long, and to make it frugal I use whatever veggies are in season and sometimes serve it over rice. I buy my fresh ginger and peel it and slice it and then freeze it and only take out the portion that I need. Got that tip from a professional chef. The sesame oil my seem like an added expense but since I make it all the time and keep it in the refridgerator it lasts a long time and it adds a special flavour to the dish."
This is a yummy chicken veggie stir fry! It's easy to make, and has a great flavor. I love pasta and chicken, and this is a great recipe! I know the photo shows broccoli instead of snow peas... because I haven't made it with snow peas yet. :) It was delicious with broccoli, though! :) My rating: 10/10.
