Easy Chinese Chicken Stir-Fry

I am always wanting to cook easy and quick dinners. We love eating Chinese food.  I recently made a Chinese chicken stir-fry with oyster sauce.  That yummy sauce found in the Asian isle at your local grocery store.  I use oyster sauce for my egg rolls.

The easy way is to buy the vegetables already cut up and prepared.  They are fresh and you can speed up making dinner with prepared veggies.  You could also use frozen vegetables as well.

Feel free to try this with other meat and vegetables.  You can get creative.  I love the rich sauce with this dish.

Don't forget Chinese New Year is coming up on Tuesday Feb. 5th.  Year of the Pig.
