Lazy Man’s Stir Fry

I love easy meals, and this is a meal that we’ve got down to a science!  After about 5 years of tweaking the recipe, it’s perfect!  Jeff can even cook it in about 20 minutes or less!  This is a step-by-step meal to the “T”.  Chicken is step one, vegetables are step two, and sauce is step 3.  So literally, this is as easy as 1-2-3!  And yes, I am using the word literally correctly.  Apparently that’s hard to do these days.  Yay me.

No need for a wok for this meal, so that’s awesome.  The recipe lives up to the title, because it cuts a bunch of corners, I’m sure.  However, the end result is a healthy AND tasty dish that you can prepare in minutes!!!
