Hi Deb,

I make stir fry often but don't follow any recipe. I just use whatever veggies I have in the house - typically broccoli, baby carrots, spinach, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, and snow peas.

For a different take, boil spaghetti and serve it lo mein style. I dress the noodles with sesame oil and for the sauce I mix 3 Tbsp. water, 3 Tbsp. soy sauch, 3 Tbsp. Hoisin sauce and 2 tsp. hot sauce and pour it over the stir fry meat and veggies during the last 2 minutes or so of cooking. It's yummy!

This is a favorite of mine that I've used for over a couple decades:

Lemon Chicken

4 whole chicken breasts, boned skinned and cut in to bite size pieces (of course, you can buy already skinned and boned breasts)
4 tbls peanut oil
2 tsp corn starch plus 1 tbls mixed with one tbls water
3 tsp grated lemon rind
2/3 cup chicken stock
1 lb fresh snow peas
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Rice of your choosing
Small handful of cashews or skinless peanut, both unsalted, optional

Toss chicken bites with 2 tbls oil and 2 tsp cornstarch

Heat remaining 2 tbls peanut oil in wok or skillet

Stir fry chicken about 2 minutes

Sprinkle with lemon rind and then add chicken stock and snow peas (and cashews or peanuts if you choose to)

Stir fry 1 minute

Combine lemon juice with cornstarch and water paste, add to wok and stir fry until sauce has thickened

Serve over rice
