GINGER CHILI CHICKEN STIR FRY

This recipe is FULL OF FLAVOR! I’m actually making it AGAIN this week (made it last week). We doubled the chicken and sauce and it only lasted 2 dinners and 1 lunch for the hubby. So, it went FAST! I think I’ll triple it…all of it…including the veggies next time b/c we were fighting over the veggies!
