Chinese Chicken Stirfry

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

If you have time, you can marinate your chicken for 2 hours to help infuse the flavour into the meat. However, my hubby made this recipe recently and I forgot to tell him he needed to marinate the chicken. He made it all within 20 minutes and it was still just as delicious.

I have added onion, capsicum, carrot and broccoli into the stir-fry but don’t limit yourself to this. You can add whatever you can find in the fridge.

Am assuming the abbreviation “tlb” means a tablespoon…?
lb normally means a pound…but that would be wayyyy too much 🙂
Looks yum!
